Chicken Marinades!

We grill all summer long. Heck, we grill all winter long too. LOVE grilled chicken. Here is a few of our favorite chicken marinades. So easy, healthy and delicious!

Tandoori Chicken:

1 package organic boneless skinless chicken thighs

1/2 cup plain organic yogurt

1 med lemon, juiced

2 cloves garlic

½ tsp ginger

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp paprika

1/4 tsp cayenne pepper

1/2 tsp turmeric

Marinade in a ziplock bag at least 4 hours or overnight. Grill to perfection and enjoy!

Grilled Buffalo Drummies:


  • 3 tablespoons MSG free hot sauce such as Tabasco
  • 3 tablespoons reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 4 boneless, skinless organic chicken breasts, thighs or drummies
Mix all ingredients and marinade for 4 hours or overnight. Grill to perfection! This chicken goes very well with the Mustard Balsamic Salad Dressing!

Lemon Herb Grilled Chicken:

This chicken marinade has a very fresh and tasty zing to it. It is a perfect chicken marinade for those that are adverse to spicy dishes. Also, one of the most recommended chicken marinades for the summer months.


  • 1/2 an onion (optional)
  • 3 teaspoons of oregano
  • 3 teaspoons of thyme
  • 6 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 cup of lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup of grapeseed oil
  • 2 whole chicken breasts, split in half, or boneless skinless chicken thighs (organic)


  1. Rub the chicken with the cut half of the onion, then discard the onion.
  2. Thoroughly mix the herbs and garlic with the lemon juice and oil.
  3. Coat the chicken in the marinade, making sure all areas are covered.
  4. Marinate for at least 4 hours, up to a maximum of 48 hours.

Pineapple Tamari Grilled Chicken:

I love this one on an Asian salad.

1 can pineapple chunks or rings (rings are easier to grill!) plus juice
1 cup San J Tamari
1/2 cup grapeseed oil
1 tbsp vinegar
1 tsp ginger
2 tsp minced garlic
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/4 cup raw honey

Marinade for four hours or overnight, then grill to perfection. Yum!

*Note- all these recipes are great for veggies and fish too!
