5-Minute Tuscan Chicken Marinade
"In just 5 minutes you can mix up this rich and flavorful Tuscan Chicken Marinade! A simple blend of sun-dried tomatoes, garlic, fresh herbs, and Parmesan cheese creates a zesty sauce that will completely transform your dinner! If you love to fire up the grill at this time of year too, you’re probably on the hunt for new ways to mix up the ho-hum chicken routine — and this chicken marinade is your answer! It’s full of simple Italian flavors that appeal to both kids and adults. Because really, what child doesn’t love Parmesan cheese and garlic?! The sundried tomatoes give the chicken marinade a rich, robust flavor, while the herbs add a light, fresh touch. Whether you grill your meat outside, bake it in the oven, or sear it in a skillet or grill pan indoors, this Tuscan Chicken Marinade will take your next meal over-the-top in just 5 minutes!"
NotesCooking for Two? You can prepare this marinade in advance and just use a portion of it to marinate 2 chicken breasts. I like to save the extra marinade to use on salads or on sandwiches throughout the week!
Want to Prep Ahead? This marinade will keep in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one week. You can also cook the chicken in advance so that you have cooked protein on hand to slice and serve in sandwiches, wraps, or on salads throughout the week.
Tip: I like to double the marinade recipe and set aside half of it in the refrigerator to use as salad dressing throughout the week.
