Thank you Tiffany! I know you and your family will love this grilled chicken marinade.
Yum! I love a good, easy marinade. Also I love that I can spot a Pampered Chef fan!
Isn’t Pampered Chef great? At one point in time, years ago, I almost had their full line of products! Friends of mine were always throwing Pampered Chef parties. I hope you’ll enjoy this fabulous chicken marinade.
I’m thinking pineapple juice in the mix. What a great explosion of flavors!
Hello Rae. I agree! Pineapple juice is the best for citrus marinades. For this recipe though I had a new gallon of OJ on hand so I easily swapped it out for the usual pineapple juice.
