Luke and I love to barbecue! Last summer we fell in love with a marinaded chicken that we purchased at Fresh and Easy, but it is not always available, so I thought I would try to make it at home. The marinade was easy to make and mouthwateringly delicious!!

I thought I would share my recipe with you…

Citrus Chili Cilantro Marinade Ingredients


    • 2-Cups Orange Juice
    • 1 Lemon
    • 2 Limes
    • 2 Stems Green Onion
    • 1 Bunch Cilantro
    • 2 to 3 Tbs. Chili Powder
    • Coarse Sea Salt to taste

Citrus Chili Cilantro Marinade Directions


In a medium bowl, mix Orange Juice, the juice from the Lemon and Limes. Coarse chop the Green Onions and Cilantro add to juices. Add Chili Powder and Sea Salt, whisk thoroughly.

Pour marinade over meat/poultry and refrigerate for at least 2-hours or overnight.
