Simple and delicious! Just as the submitter states this is definitely a nice alternative to bottled italian dressings for a marinade. I used olive oil instead of vegetable oil and a mix of white wine vinegar and regular distilled white and cut back a bit on the water. I did add the poultry seasoning and marinated this overnight. I added a sprig of fresh rosemary to this while it was grilling. This chicken was exceptionally good and I will definitely make this again. Read More

I used this mariadae before grilling chicken. I omitted the poultry seasoning which may have been a problem. Next time I will omit water and add some sort of citrus juice to help tenderize the meat more. Read More

I made a slight change and left out the poultry seasoning. As poultry seasoning contains most of the same seasonings that are already in the recipe I just increased them slightly - a pinch or two and let me tell you I used this marinade for a charity funtion and the chickens sold like hot cakes. I had been asked for the recipe it was so good!!!!! Read More

Much better than Italian dressing! I added fresh lemon juice to the marinade to give it some acid to tenderize the meat and used extra virgin olive oil in place of the vegetable oil. I want to try this with fresh herbs this summer. Read More

Great marinade recipe! The only thing I added was a few bay leaves and a tad extra garlic. We love garlic =) I used it on Country Style Pork Ribs then tossed 'em on the grill. Ooooh YUM! Anyway it came out great - just like Mom used to make in summer time. Thanks for the recipe Denyse will be using again and again!! Read More

Great marinade. We let the chicken sit for 3 hours and would have done longer if we hadn't been so hungry:) I doubled the garlic. Yummy! Read More

What a flavorful marinade Denyse! We used it tonight on a top round roast that I marinated for 6 hours then pan-seared. This received rave reviews at my house. I used others suggestions and used lemon juice instead of water and added a bay leaf. Thank you so much I can't wait to try it on chicken! Read More
