This is the best "fooler" recipe I've ever used. It takes just a few minutes but looks like you fussed. You can even place frozen chicken breasts in the marinade and allow them to defrost and marinade in the refrigerator overnight.—Nan Haring, Portage, Michigan

"This is my new go-to recipe when marinating chicken. This marinade is absolutely delicious and so quick and easy to prepare. I left my chicken in the marinade overnight and all the next day because we ate out at the last minute. The longer marinating time didn't hurt at all. That chicken was mouth-watering good. Definitely worth five stars."
