We love this chicken. The marinade whips up in a minute in the food processor or blender. Preparation time does not include time to marinate.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put all marinade ingredients in the blender or food processor and liquify.
  2. Put marinade in a gallon-size zip lock bag and add chicken pieces. Turn a few times to distribute marinade.
  3. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours I leave it for about 10 hours.
  4. Remove chicken from marinade and place on hot grill. Discard marinade.
  5. Grill, turning occasionally, until chicken is cooked through.

Due to a time factor I played with the preparation of this recipe and it still came out quite delicious.

Instead of marinating I rubbed all the herbs and spices onto the slightly pounded boneless chicken breasts then pan grilled them in the olive oil. after cooking and cooling slightly I cut up the chicken and used it top a salad which I made a lime/orange vingrette with chipotle and garlic to compliment the spices in the chicken. The combination was great though I could easily have eaten the chicken on its own as it was very flavorful. This one's a keeper! Thanks for sharing, made for ZWT 8 by one of The Wild Bunch

This is by far the best recipe I have made from this website. I think this marinade is restaurant quality. My husband was also blown away. Thank you for sharing it.

One of the best chicken marinades EVER! I got this marinated for about 4-5 hours. Wow the flavor really stuck and got through the meat really well. Yummy stuff!
