Best Chicken Marinade – an easy chicken marinade that works with grilled chicken (or any kind of chicken). Flavorful and simple ingredients!


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil (or avocado oil)
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce (or tamari or coconut aminos)
  • 2 teaspoons worcestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoons garlic, minced
  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest, minced


  • Combine ingredients in a small bowl.
  • Whisk to combine. 
  • Pour over chicken and let marinate for at least 30 minutes. 
  • Cook chicken however you want (we love grilling them). 


  • Paleo/Whole30: to make paleo/Whole30 use coconut aminos instead of soy sauce and omit the worsteshire sauce.
