A handful of ingredients are all you need for this marinade that kicks up flavor without much fat. "There's a real zip to this chicken," promises Margaret Wilson of Hemet, California. "I like to make large batches of the marinade and freeze it so it's on hand when we're in the mood to grill chicken."

"This is pretty good. It marinate makes the chicken pretty sweet so, it needs a side that will balance it out. The chicken was super moist!"
