Delicious marinade for chicken with a really cute name! What a wonderful combination of fresh herbs. I subbed a jalapeno pepper as that's what I had on hand and upped the garlic a bit (love the stuff). I pounded my chicken down a bit and poked it with a fork then put everything into a ziploc bag and let it go all day turning it once in a while. The chicken was moist, full of flavor with a nice kick from the pepper. I dare say even "Simon and Garfunkel" would approve. Thanks for a great recipe Pam-3BoysMama!

My husband loves this marinade. I came up with this to use the the various herbs growing in my garden. I used a small orange habanero. Serrano or jalapeno peppers would work well, too. Use your preference, and use less if you like. The longer your chicken marinates, the spicier it will become. :)


Made for Recipe Group. Delightful flavor. I used a pepper my aunt cans, one wasn't enough, next time need more heat. Used some dried herbs as I don't grow all of these fresh, but the fresh ones come through so much better! I didn't salt or pepper and they needed a little salt. Very flavorful marinade, thanks Pam!
