  • 1/4 cup olive oil

Instructions

  1. Put all the marinade ingredients in a blender or food processor and liquify.
  2. Put the marinade in a gallon-size zip lock bag and add the chicken pieces. Turn a few times to distribute the marinade. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours. I leave it for about 10 hours.

  4. Grill, turning occasionally, until the chicken is cooked through.
