This marinade is friggin' deeeeeeeliiiicious!  Tons of flavor!  Bright! Savory! Smoky


I marinated chicken with this recipe but you can use this with pork, fish or veggies!  


This recipe sings on the grill and is even better the next day.  I don't think I craved chicken this much since I smelled someone's fried chicken at the office while I was picking at my sad salad.  


So throw down on greens, grab a pack of pitas & hummus (try my Butternut Squash Hummus) and have a feast!


Here's how to make it.......



  • 3 oz. - Canola Oil

  • 2 oz. - Lemon Juice

  • 1 oz. - White Wine Vinegar

  • 3 ea. - Garlic Cloves

  • 3 Tbsp. - White Onion, small dice

  • 1 ½ tsp - Kosher Salt

  • ¼ tsp. - Black Pepper

  • 1 tsp.  - Paprika

  • 1 tsp. - Oregano

  • ½ tsp. - Cumin

  • ¼ tsp. - Ground Thyme


*This will marinate up to 2 pounds of meat.




Prep your chicken, or meat of choice, and have ready on standby. 


Combine all ingredients into a blender and buzz away until it is all smooth.  Thats it!  Reserve about a quarter cup of the marinade for basting while grilling. 



Pour the marinade over the chicken, cover and marinate for about 1 - 4 hours.


Fire up your grill, use the reserve to baste as your flip your chicken.  Enjoy!
