Herb Marinated Chicken

Hello everyone, it’s been a long while since I have posted. I have no good excuse except I have just been too busy enjoying things around the house and yard.  I’m glad to have picked up the computer again and hope you all will enjoy this simple yet flavorful marinade recipe. It’s early summer and my herb garden is in full bloom and that always get my taste buds anxious for new recipes.


  • juice of 2 lemons
  • 1 white onion
  • 3 to 4 garlic cloves
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • handful of fresh parsley leaves
  • handful of fresh spearmint leaves
  • a pinch of saffron
  • a splash of rosewater
  • 1 cup of water

Using a food processor, combine all the ingredient and pulse until completely blended. This fresh tasting marinade is a great pair with chicken. Just place some chicken thighs in a zip-lock gallon sized freezer bag, add the marinade, seal and refrigerate for at least 4 hours. Grill or bake when ready. We like to pair it with a little onion-peach salsa for dipping.

    Like you do, I love using my fresh herbs in cooking/baking. I like your choices and I bet your chicken was very good. Interesting about the rose water. I learned from a fellow blogger that orange blossom water is used frequently in North African cooking versus rose water 🙂

      Orange blossom water? Hmmm….I’ll have to look for that at our International Market. Sounds yummy. Fresh herbs are addicting, aren’t they? Thanks for stopping by my blog again JuJu.
