Lemon Garlic Grilled Chicken Marinade

Lemon Garlic Grilled Chicken Marinade is a flavorful way to dress up plain old grilled chicken breast. The marinade helps tenderize the chicken, to yield super juicy and delicious meat. We usually make this on the grill during summer, but it’s just as good if pan fried. And the best part? I’s freezer-friendly, too!


For the marinade:

4 teaspoons olive oil

2 tablespoons water

1 teaspoon dried garlic powder

1 tablespoon white wine vinegar

2 lemons (juice only)

1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt

1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper


1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts

Mix all ingredients for the marinade in a dish or a bag that’s large enough to hold the chicken. Add the chicken and cover. Leave to sit in the fridge for at least 2 hours or for up to 2 days.

To freeze: To freeze, place the chicken and the marinade in a freezer bag. Seal and label with the name of the dish and the date. Freeze for up to 3 months. To defrost, place in a soup plate (or similar to catch any thawing ice) in the fridge overnight.

To grill: Place the marinated chicken on the hot grill and cook from both sides until juices run clear and the internal temperature has reached 165°F. The chicken cooks faster if you close the grill.
