Throw Together Marinade for Chicken

Into a large zipper freezer bag put:

  • the juice of one or two lemons (add the zest, too, if you like)
  • a clove of smooshed or minced garlic, or a spoon full from a jar of fresh chopped garlic
  • a handful of roughly chopped oregano, or a heaping teaspoonful of dry — you can throw in the stems, too, if you’re feeling lazy
  • a small spoonful of coarsely ground black pepper
  • a large splash of olive oil, or other healthy oil
  • big pinch of salt

Shake and smoosh the ingredients until well mixed.  Add the chicken and marinate for at least a couple of hours, or overnight.  Remove the chicken from the marinade, and discard the remaining marinade.  Cook the chicken by barbecuing, baking, pan frying, or however you like.
