A quick and easy chicken marinade that’s guaranteed to crowd-please. You can whisk together, pour over chicken, and let it soak for as little as 30 minutes – or up to overnight for maximum flavor. This recipe is designed for 1 pound of boneless skinless chicken breasts, but can easily be doubled, tripled, or even quadrupled.



  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce, or liquid aminos (if gluten-free)
  • Juice of 1 lime (about 2 tablespoons)
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Whisk together olive oil, soy sauce, lime juice, honey, minced garlic, cumin, salt, and pepper in a medium mixing bowl.
  2. Add chopped parsley and stir.
  3. Place chicken breasts in a zip-top bag, and pour marinade mixture over top. Seal the bag, and gently shake and massage to make sure the chicken gets evenly coated.
  4. Place in the fridge for at least 30 minutes (ideally between 2-8 hours). When ready, grill up your chicken breasts!
