Lemon Dill Chicken Marinade

The origin of this chicken recipe comes from the SavorySweetLife. I didn’t have to modify much at all, and we LOVE this stuff! I can eat it until I’m packed like a Thanksgiving turkey! ๐Ÿ˜‰ The flavors are simple to create, yet supremely tasty. I use this on chicken thighs most of the time, but it is wonderful on breast meat as well! I think I am even going to venture into trying it on a whole roasting chicken. I will be sure to post pictures and let you know how it works out.

Here is all you will need for the easy peasy marinade…

  • 2 tablespoons Avocado Oil (you can use olive, but the smoke point is not near as high)
  • 2 tablespoons Lemon Juice
  • 2 teaspoons dried Dill
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Sea Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Black Pepper

Mix all of the ingredients in a small dish or small mason jar to combine…or if you wish, you can add them all straight into a ziplock bag with your chicken of choice. Zip it up, and shake and abuse it like you would with good old fashioned shake n’ bake. ๐Ÿ˜‰ You can let it marinate in the fridge, or go straight to the oven with it. I never take the time to let it sit…straight into the oven for me!


I simply poured it over my FROZEN chicken thighs in a 9×13 glass baking dish. I used my hands to make sure that it was evenly distributed over all of the thighs, and placed it in the oven. 350 degrees for 45 minutes to and hour usually does the trick.


You can use this one recipe on up to 2 lbs of chicken. However, I have used it on as little as 4 chicken thighs at a time. It just depends on the amount of flavor you wish you have present on any given day. ๐Ÿ˜‰ ย Chicken thighs, breasts, and wings all taste wonderful with this marinade. I have not tried it yet, but would not be surprised if it was good on fish and other meats as well!

You are going to love this stuff!





  1. Lemon and dill are such naturals with fish, that I’m guessing you called it, correctly, on that one. What a simple and tasty way to add fresh flavors!
