    • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
    • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
    • 1/4 cup white wine
    • 3-4 garlic cloves, crushed
    • 1 tablespoon dried parsley, crushed
    • 1 teaspoon herbs de provence or Italian seasoning
    • 1 teaspoon black pepper


    • Combine all ingredients in a container.
    • If time is an issue, all ingredients except the oil can be combined ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator a few days.
    • Add the oil right before using.
    • Making your own marinade reduces exposure to hydrogenated oils and trans fats, preservatives, artificial flavorings and natural flavorings which could mean MSG.

    To use for chicken:

    • Remove skin and fat from chicken pieces.
    • This reduces the polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH), a known carcinogen, when grilling.
    • Place in the marinade container and coat well.
    • Marinate at least 2 hours or longer.
    • Remove chicken from marinade and place chicken on grill or broil.
