I used to think I needed special seasoning packets or bottled blends to actually get some FLAVOR when I marinated meat.
But those pre-packaged marinades usually are full of sodium, sugar and not-so-healthy additives, so when I started eating cleaner to relieve my thyroid symptoms (low energy & metabolism, brain fog, etc.) I needed a way to spice up our meat WITHOUT relying on those seasoning packets!
This easy marinade has been a life saver!! It’s super quick and the meat ends up really moist (dry chicken is the WORST right?). You can pair your chicken with brown rice or sweet potato and veggies, or use it on salads, wraps, etc.
