Greek Lemon Marinade for Chicken


  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 lemon, grated zest of
  • 2 Tbsp. chopped parsley
  • 1 tsp. dried oregano or 1 Tbsp. chopped fresh oregano
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste when ready to grill


Mix all ingredients except the salt and pepper in a bowl, then pour into either a container with a lid that seals, or into a zip-lock bag. Add the skinned chicken pieces, the size you will be grilling, and let marinate 30 minutes to 1 hour before grilling. Remove chicken from marinade and begin grilling, brushing on the marinade occasionally to keep the chicken moist. Grill until chicken is done when pierced to release a bit of clear juice.


Note: This recipe makes about 3/4's of a cup. It can be doubled or tripled for more if needed.
