As I mentioned a couple weeks ago, I’m starting to get tired of my coronavirus quarantine food selection. I’ve stocked up on plenty of meats, pantry staples and hearty vegetables. And we go shopping for fresh veggies about once every two weeks. But everything is starting to taste the same.

So, I came up with a game plan: start incorporating more marinades and sauces into my meals, so easy dinners don’t have to be repetitive. Two weeks ago, I shared this 4-Ingredient Balsamic Marinade. We’ve used it on chicken and steak, so far, and it is a game-changer. My husband could not stop raving about the steaks I made with it.

Today, I’m sharing a new marinade! This Lemon Basil Marinade adds just the right amount of pizzaz to chicken, seafood or vegetables. And it’s all made with pantry staples, so you don’t have to worry about the fresh basil you bought this morning going bad before noon.

This Lemon Basil Marinade is super simple to make. You only need five ingredients and two minutes, and you’re well on your way to lemony, basily bliss.

Just measure your ingredients into a small mason jar or dressing container, screw the lid on and shake, shake, shake!

Because of the dried basil, it won’t blend up perfectly, but that’s fine.

Just pour it over your chicken, fish, shrimp or vegetables, marinate, and cook! For meat, marinate up to 24 hours. For seafood and vegetables, just marinate it for about 30 minutes (any longer and it gets slimy!).

When it’s done marinating, discard the marinade and cook your meat, seafood or vegetables as usual. Try grilling, roasting or pan-frying. Delish!
