Savory Lemon Marinade

13th Jun 2019

I spent years wondering what mom's secret was to cooking moist chicken that was full of flavour every time. After begging and pleading she finally let me know that using a simple marinade was the key. This easy recipe for Savory Lemon Marinade is ideal for chicken (check out my recipe for Grilled Savory Lemon Drumsticks), turkey or pork.
