This is a question not a review, gave it 4 stars because it sounds delicious. Can anyone tell me what is lemon-pepper marinade? Do you buy this pre-made, or if you make it yourself-- what are the ingredients? Can anyone help. Thank you.

Made this last night and it was delicious. My daughter came home from a friend's house where she had dinner and loved the smell the kitchen and asked if we had any leftovers. Unfortunately no. I will make again.
