Excellent marinade! One of our favorites from this site! Don't be freaked out by the long list of ingredients -- most of them ARE in your pantry! I halved the marinade recipe for 4 medium-sized chicken breasts, and used bottled lemon and lime juices. Tender, juicy and flavorful chicken.


Great marinade! I left this on overnight and the chicken came out very moist. The flavors really came through. Not overly sweet or spicy, just right. I pounded the chicken down to 1/2 inch thick. I used olive oil vs. veg. oil. I used low sodium soy sauce and dijon in place of ground mustard. I was a little leary of so much lemon pepper, but it was delicious!

A HUGE hit at our cookout!!! I didn't change a thing, the meat was so moist and full of flavor, yet not over powering. I got so many compliments. It was worth mixing all of the ingredients, and what a wonderful aroma!
