Easy AND Tasty!, Member miranywho

I was looking for a simple chicken marinade recipe that was not too oily and I was likely to have all of the ingredients in my pantry. This was exactly what I was needing! It made the chicken have a simple flavor that you could pair with a rice dish or grilled veggies or macaroni and cheese...whatever you've got! Give it a shot, you'll like it (I used chicken breasts and a mixed veggie grill of zucchini squash, yellow squash, and purple onion. Magnificent!)
