Lee's Tropical Chicken Marinade

"Lee doesn't cook. Ever. But after watching "Woman on Top," she got inspired to invent this marinade. Maybe I should change the name to Woman on Top Marinade. lol No matter what we call it, it's a good, tropical-tasting marinade that is great for grilled chicken or seafood."

Ready In:
1 1/2 cups




  • Mix all ingredients together and pour over chicken.
  • Marinate at least 30 minutes.
  • If you use the meat tenderizer, don't marinade for more than an hour or so, or the meat fibers will break down too much. If you leave it out, marinate as long as you'd like. I prefer overnight.

  1. I used this marinade for chicken we cooked on the grill tonight. It marinated about an hour but everyone felt that next time we should marinate it longer. Next time I will do just that. I will update the review and adjust the stars, at that time, if needed.


I was born and raised for the most part in Georgia. Since 1997 I've lived in the beautiful mountains of western NC, where I spend way too much time at work and not nearly enough time camping! I have a partner of 15 years (Lee) and 3 kids--2 grown and 1 teenager still at home. Lee doesn't cook, but she's my cooking cheerleader, and she and my son will always at least try anything I make, no matter what. Camping is one of my favorite things to do. Other favorite ways to spend my time are doing beadwork, knitting, and making homemade soap. I should also admit that I spend waaaay too much time on the internet, but the bright side of that is that it brought me to Zaar! I spend a ridiculous amount of time here, but I love every minute of it. It's also has helped cure me of my pathological cookbook buying. I used to call cookbooks with full-page glossy photos my food porn. ;-) Now, thanks to all the talented photographers here, I can get all the food porn I want! I love to read recipes, which most of my friends think is just weird. I suspect, though, that a lot of you don't think it's weird at all! I love to cook, but only when I want to. I also love to entertain and wish I had time to do more of it. I love trying new recipes. I was a vegetarian (vegan, actually) for several years, and that's when I got hooked on trying so many different cuisines. I still love vegetarian foods, but I do eat some meat, fish, and dairy/eggs now. I still try to keep it healthy and eat as little processed food as possible, but I'm not totally strict about it. Sometimes I want some good old junk food--I just try to make it home-made junk, so at least I know what's in it! My pet peeve is willful ignorance. Grrrr
