A Thyme for Sharing: Reader Recipe – Marinade

Turkey  A Thyme for Sharing ~ An Herbal Treasures Reader Writes…

“I’d like to share a turkey marinade that I concocted about 10 years ago, and have shared with tons of folks. They in return have passed it on to guests in their homes. Recipes only get better and better when shared with friends. This works well with turkey or chicken, in the oven, or on the barbeque. I submitted it to Allrecipes.com a couple of years ago.”

Here it is:

Chicken and Turkey Marinade

A 24-hour marinade, guaranteed to please every time. Chicken or turkey is always moist, tender. Use half of a recipe for a chicken, or the full recipe for a turkey of any size.

Everyone will clamor for this recipe!!!

Makes 5 cups of marinade.

1 cup olive oil
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
1/4 cup minced fresh chives
1/2 cup chopped fresh sage
1/2 cup minced fresh oregano
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
1/4 cup chopped fresh thyme
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tablespoon paprika

In a small bowl whisk together olive oil, soy sauce, lemon juice, and mustard. Add the chives, sage, oregano, parsley, thyme, garlic, paprika, and herb seasoning. Cover, and refrigerate for 30 minutes to allow flavors to blend before marinating your favorite meat.
