Make the best Lemon Chicken Marinade in just a few minutes with simple, healthy, ingredients. It's great for grilling, pan frying and oven baking. With olive oil, lemon & basil the chicken comes out juicy, tender and flavor packed.
Place all ingredients for the marinade in a bowl and mix.
Bring out two plastic bags and place one in the other. Place the chicken in the inner bag and pour over the marinade. Close the bags with a knot and massage the chicken gently through the bags to distribute the marinade evenly. Place in a bowl in the fridge and leave to marinate for at least 1 hour, turning once halfway.
Grill, oven bake or pan sear the chicken until cooked all the way through. Cook time will vary with size and cooking method. See notes for approximate cook times.
