For the marinade

  • 4 teaspoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 teaspoon dried garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 2 lemons juice only
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper


  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts


  • Mix all ingredients for the marinade in a dish or a bag that's large enough to hold the chicken. Add the chicken and cover. Leave to sit in the fridge for at least 2 hours or for up to 2 days.
  • To freeze: To freeze, place the chicken and the marinade in a freezer bag. Seal and label with the name of the dish and the date. Freeze for up to 3 months. To defrost, place in a soup plate (or similar to catch any thawing ice) in the fridge overnight.
  • To grill: Place the marinated chicken on the hot grill and cook from both sides until juices run clear and the internal temperature has reached 165°F. The chicken cooks faster if you close the grill.
