"Made this tonight. Didn't have rosemary or cumin so kind of mix and matched with the alternate recipe an added thyme with oregano. Marinated for 6 hours straight to the grill. Had amazing taste and was perfectly juicy and tender. Will definitely be making again soon"


6 Chicken breast halves
1/4 c olive oil
2 cloves garlic; minced
2 tb Lemon juice; strained
1 ts Black pepper
1 ts Ground cumin; optional
1/2 ts Salt

Original recipe makes 6 Servings



Place chicken in shallow dish. Combine all ingredients, pour over both sides of chicken. Cover and refrigerate, fish up to 2 hours and chicken overnight if you wish. Grill covered or broil about 10 min. each side until done, serve immediately.

Variation: Garlic-herb marinade for chicken or fish: Prepare marinade as above, omitting cumin and using only 1/2 teaspoon black pepper. Add 1 teaspoon dried thyme or 1 teaspoon oregano and 1/2 teaspoon minced fresh rosemary.

great flavor and very tender

I love this marinade! I have used it for chicken and fish and it is delicious on both. Each time I've made it I skipped the cumin and did a thyme/Rosemary combo. Will continue to use this!

Excellent flavor and super simple to make.

It was good and helped the chicken be perfectly tender which is a plus, but it wasn't high in flavor. Next time I'd try something with more spice.

This was such a tasty dish. I marinated the chicken for 12 hours and it was delicious. My girlfriend and I loved it. I can't wait to make it again.
