Awesome Grilled Chicken Marinade

This chicken marinade for the grill or baked is so easy, has so much flavor and is so healthy. You can whip it up quickly in your food processor and store in the fridge or the freezer!

  • Add all ingredients to a food processor and pulse until a paste forms
  • Store in an air tight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 months or in the freezer for up to 6 months.


  • You can safely leave chicken marinating in the refrigerator for up to 2 days, but since this marinade is full of citrus, I would leave it on for an hour at most.  The citrus can start to break down the chicken and make it mushy.
  • If you are only using a portion of the marinade, spoon enough into a bowl and then store the rest for later, being sure not to contaminate the extra marinade.
