Units Scale


Place all ingredients in a small mason jar, seal and give it a good shake. Because of the dried basil, it won’t all blend perfectly, but that’s OK.

Use it to marinate chicken (up to 24 hours), seafood or veggies (30 min).

Drain marinade and discard. Then cook your chicken, seafood, or veggies as usual.


Marinade works great for about 2 lbs of meat or veggies, but feel free to adjust to your liking.

All nutrition information is an estimate, only, using an online nutrition calculator. Keep in mind that you don’t eat all the marinade, too. Some is discarded after marinating.
