This is a very tasty marinade. I marinated boneless skinless chicken breasts for several hours and they were very tender and delicious. The only change I made was to use fresh herbs from my garden instead of dried, making this a true Summer Italian marinade! I used the remainder of a bottle of cooking wine for this recipe, but will be using a dry white wine in the future. Thanks for this recipe. I will definitely make this again and again!

I used fresh herbs and marinated 3 boneless/skinless breasts for about 8 hours (20 serving as written made about half a ziploc gallon bag's worth of liquid); pan fried about 3 mins then baked about 10. Nothing to write home about, kind of oily and not enough Zing. I honestly enjoy just a bottle of zesty italian dressing for marinade to this, but I am glad I tried it, and thank you for posting it! It would probably be great for picky eaters as it is somewhat bland.

4.5 stars. 1/2 star off due to cooking wine ingredient. Better to use an inexpensive dry white wine you'd actually drink. Also, instead of basil I chose rosemary. Upped garlic to 1 tblsp & used 1 green onion. I would use fresh herbs when available but the dry worked also. I cut recipe in 1/2 using 1 C wine with 1/4C lemon juice and 2 tblsp olive oil but kept herbs at original recipe quantities (I didn't bother adding whole peppercorns). I only needed enough for 2 chicken breasts. The extra (unused) I marinaded a smaller cut sirloin steak in. Both times I did overnight marinading and find the flavor profile versitile for different meats. Well, I liked it plenty with my few minor adjustments. Tasty without being overbearing. Of course you can adjust flavors to you liking - Thanks for the post!
