  • 2 medium garlic clove(s) minced (about 2 tablespoons)
  • 1/4 cup(s) white wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoon(s) water, cold
  • 1/4 cup(s) olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon(s) honey, raw
  • 1/2 medium lemon(s) cut into 1/4 inch slices
  • 1 tablespoon(s) oregano, dried
  • 1 tablespoon(s) rosemary, dried
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) black pepper freshly ground
  • 1 tablespoon(s) sea salt (optional)
  • 1 pound(s) chicken breast(s), boneless, skinless


  1. Combine all ingredients, except chicken, in a medium bowl to form marinade.
  2. Place chicken in a large dish or ziploc bag and pour marinade over chicken.
  3. Marinate overnight.
  4. The next day, remove chicken from marinade.
  5. Preheat broiler to high.
  6. Place chicken on a roasting rack (or wire cooling rack) on top of a rimmed baking sheet on top rack of oven. Broil 5 minutes.
  7. Next, place chicken on middle oven rack, change oven temperature to 350 F and bake for 20 minutes (or until chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 F).
  8. Serve with a salad or side.


  1. Very good, cooked 3 breasts the next day on the George Foreman in a few minutes. One of the tastiest chicken dishes I’ve made!

  2. Super easy and great flavor…definitely a keeper that I will go back to again and again in the future.

  3. I just made this today (minus the grape seed oil). Very tasty stuff. I would say it has a bit of an Asian taste to it. I used too much salt so it ended up being very salty. Less salt next time.

  4. This had a really good flavor! However, I created quite a bit of smoke trying to broil it. I used chicken breasts, though. Delicious!

  5. Delicious! Easy to make and well worth the marinating time. Only thing I’ll change next time is using half the salt called for.

  6. I make this recipe using a 5 or 6 pound whole chicken in the crock pot for 5 or 6 hours. Comes out amazing, means plenty of leftovers for lunch for the week and a great base for homemade chicken stock! Great recipe!

  7. The nutritional value seems a little high for one serving. I put it into and for one serving it was more like 213 calories per serving. I did it per chicken breast instead of a quarter of a chicken.

  8. I took a 3lb chicken & roasted it using my grandmas settings (20 min per lb plus 20 min @ 350 degrees). Turned out perfectly! Best marinade I’ve ever tried

  9. Hi guys, I am a newbie to paleo :-D, when you use 2-3 pounds, do you double/triple the ingredients for the marinade?

  10. I didn’t have white wine vinegar, so I used apple cider vinegar and it was delicious! Also I skipped the broiling part and let it bake in a pan with all the marinade (minus the lemon slices) until the chicken was cooked. Great recipe!
