This delightful Lemon Rosemary Chicken Marinade boosts the flavor of plain chicken to amazing with its tangy citrus herb taste! Like all of my wonderful chicken marinades, it's super easy to make and can marinate in the fridge or go straight into the freezer for weekly meal prep!
In a small mixing bowl combine all ingredients (olive oil, lemon juice, rosemary, garlic, thyme, salt, and pepper) and mix well.
Pour the marinade into a ziploc plastic storage bag then add the chicken. Squeeze out the excess air while you seal the bag securely.
Rub the marinade into the chicken through the bag by squishing the marinade around the bagged chicken.
Refrigerate for at least 4 hours for best results. Freeze for up to 3 months.
This lemon rosemary marinade makes a ½ cup of marinade for each 1 pound of chicken (wings, thighs, breasts, quarters, skewers, or roasters) that you wish to marinate.If you will be grilling whole chicken breasts, it is best to flatten the chicken breasts for quick and even cooking. Place your chicken breasts between two sheets of plastic cling film and pound with a meat mallet or tenderizer ( the flat side ). Start at the center of the chicken breast and work your way toward the edges.
