"This is a yummy, flavorful marinade that livens up bland chicken dinners. However, this could also be used on pork chops, fish and turkey! I made this with brown rice and used some of the unused marinade as a sauce to pour over the rice. DELICIOUS!!!"

fresh lemon juice
extra-virgin olive oil
prepared yellow mustard (such as French's®)
ground dried oregano
i added equal parts rosemary as oragano, and i used grainy (old fashioned) mustard instead of yellow. to set of all flavours add 1/2 cup plain yogurt and 1 tsp curry. trust me..... try it
otherwise amazing recipe :)
I used bottled lemon juice because I didn't have fresh lemons. The recipe calls for juice from a fresh lemon so if you use bottled lemon juice, cut back by at least half. My fish ended up very, very lemony but I did not decrease the amount of bottled lemon juice from the original amount called for in the recipe. Even so, I think the recipe still needs something else to offset the lemon flavor. Next time I think I will add black pepper or ginger to add another dimension to the flavor. Thanks for sharing.
This was a very nice "last minute" chicken marinade. I appreciate that this only needs an hour of marinating time since it can be marinated after work, but before dinner. The lemon flavor is strong, giving it a nice tang. Mr. LTH grilled our BLSL chicken breasts which worked nicely with this marinade. THANKS for the recipe!
Very good & versatile. I will use this again.
Great recipe! Added lemon zest instead of lemon juice to recipe. Marinated one hour added juice from one small lemon right before I grilled chicken.
good and easy to do!
on a side note, you should never add salt to marinades because it pulls moisture out of the meat.
The recipe was good, but it didn't include any salt or pepper so I added both just before the chicken was finished cooking. Next time I will add salt and pepper to the marinade and marinate it several hours.
