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! Read More

I had high hopes for this as even though there were not many reviews most of them were good. I really wanted to love this considering I had all the fresh herbs for this straight from my garden and stuck to the exact ingredients and marinated overnight. Overwhelming taste of lemon none of the vinegar and nothing to offset that taste. I'll stick to my own garlic/herb marinade that uses all of the same herbs but with white wine vinegar and honey from now on. Thanks but sorry no go for my family. Read More

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! Read More

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. Read More

I had a dinner party and got two amazing comments regarding this marinade "That was the best chicken I've ever had" and "That was better than any chicken I've ever eaten in a restaurant". Talk about rave reviews! It was the best chicken I've ever made. I used boneless skinless chicken breasts and marinaded them for 24 hours rotating the chicken in the bowl after 12 hours. The only change I made was to double the fresh parsley in place of the basil. Read More

My chicken turned out moist tender and delicious. I was only able to marinate about two hours before grilling but that was plenty of time. I'm sure it would have been even more flavorful if allowed to marinate the full 8 hours. Thanks for sharing the recipe! Read More

This is a great marinade. I love it just the way it's written as well as with 2 tbsp's soy sauce and 1 tbsp brown sugar. I usually use dry herbs because that's what I have on hand. Wonderful! Read More

I was looking for a new marinade for "beer can chicken " which is my favorite way to cook chicken. Used dried herbs instead of fresh and reserved marinade for basting. This was very easy kid friendly and good for a weekday meal. Read More
