Easy Lemon and Herb Chicken Marinade


  • One 3-to-4-pound chicken
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons whole-grain mustard
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 4 garlic cloves, smashed
  • 3 thyme sprigs
  • jalapeño, thinly sliced
  • 1 lemon, thinly sliced


1. On a clean cutting board, break down the chicken into wings, breasts, thighs and drumsticks. Discard the carcass (or reserve for making stock).

2. Place the chicken pieces in a resealable bag, add the remaining ingredients, seal the bag and coat the chicken thoroughly. Allow the chicken to marinate for 8 to 12 hours.

3. When you’re ready cook the marinated chicken, roast with the accompanying marinating ingredients or discard the marinating components and grill or sear the chicken.
