Fabulous chicken marinade! I used this on boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 4) and I followed the recipe exactly. I poked the chicken with fork, put every thing into a ziploc bag and let it marinate overnight (which I highly suggest). I grilled it with a fresh sprig of rosemary and WOW -it came out so moist, juicy and full of the delicate flavor from the fresh herbs. It's a definite keeper. I served this with a side dish of "Bow Tie Pasta with Broccoli, Garlic and Lemon" from this site. Thanks for a great recipe, JustDMarine!



I didn't have white wine or fresh herbs on hand, so I modified it a little and it turned out amazing! I used (for 6 servings): 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil, 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice, 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar, 1 teaspoon dried basil, 1 teaspoon dried parsley, 1/8 teaspoon dried rosemary, 1/8 teaspoon dried thyme , 3 cloves garlic minced, 1-1/2 teaspoons fresh-ground black pepper, 3/4 teaspoon salt. I would use this marinade over a soy sauce marinade any day, and it's way healthier!



This recipe was great, but it's imparative that fresh herbs be used. I tried using dried basil, parsley and thyme, because all I had fresh was rosemary. The result was an overpowering flavor of rosemary. I suggest following the recipe. It's great as it's stated. PS I put the chicken/marinade in the freezer and just the thaw time allowed for perfect marinating time and the grilled chicken was quite juicy.
