Perfect Marinade

No Joke!  It’s amazing!!  Here’s what happened…..

One day, I brought my husband (who was at that time my fiance) to my friends house to introduce them to each other!  

They decided to make a barbecue chicken lunch for us.  Before I could finish my first bite of the chicken I was begging for the recipe!!!  It’s not saucy or glazy, but it is packed with flavour in every bite!!  I was absolutely amazed!!!

I think the secret is in the marinating as they suggested to marinate it for three days in the fridge!!  3 days?!?!   I’m totally one of those “That chicken has been in there for 2 days and that is Long enough for me!!!” kinda gal. Lol

So I change my tune whenever I make this.  And it is amazing with any type of meat!!!!  I have tried fish, lamb, Kangaroo, chicken, and steak!!


  • 1/3C Lemon Juice
  • 1.5C Canola Oil
  • 3/4C Soy Sauce
  • 1/4C Worchester Sauce
  • 1.5C tsp parsley flakes
  • 2 tbl mustard
  • 2 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tbl pepper
  • 1/2C Brown Vinegar
  • 2 Cloves crushed garlic


It took me about two lemons to get the juice I needed. :)

Ready to whisk!!

At this point, I pretty much poke the chicken in as much as possible and cover with plastic wrap and pop in the fridge. Every so often, I will go in and give the bowl a little shake. I will even move the pieces around a bit.  Here, I did buy 2.5 kilos of chicken wings, so I drizzled a few more of the same ingredients on top. 

This is now covered with plastic wrap and in my fridge.  I will probably make it tomorrow night as I cannot wait three days for this LOL!!!

I’ll post photos after I barbecue!!

…….okay!   3 days later.   It AMAZING!!
