Ingredients

Italian inspired Chicken Marinade:

  • 1/4 cup olive oil extra virgin
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 to 2 cloves fresh garlic minced
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon red chili pepper flakes
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh or dry basil chopped
  • 1 pinch kosher salt

For the Dijon Lemon Marinade:

  • 1/4 cup olive oil extra virgin
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 heaping tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • salt and pepper
  • lemon slices

Instructions

  • Add your chicken breast into a large gallon sized zip top bag and pour ingredients into the bag and mix around with your hands from the outside. Alternatively, you can mix together the marinade ingredients in the bag first and then carefully place your chicken breast inside. For the Dijon Lemon Marinade, place the lemon slices on top of the chicken and close the seal the bag closed, ensuring as much air has been released from the bag.
  • Place into the refrigerator for at least 3 hours, or overnight. Grill, pan fry, or air fry and enjoy!
