  • This makes any cut of chicken tasty. The citrus tenderizes the meat while the oil makes it extremely juicy.
  • This is a wonderful marinade for a charcoal barbecue – I am an avid believer that when it comes to barbecues, charcoal is best!
  • This marinade would is amazing on a whole butterflied barbecued chicken.
