Easy Basic Marinade
THM:FP, low carb, low fat, sugar free, gluten/egg/dairy/nut free
Serves: 10
  • 3½ lbs. fresh chicken cuts of choice (I used chicken breast cut into strips; you could use other meats as well, but that might take the meal out of the low fat category)
  • ½ cup water
  • ¾ cup lemon juice
  • ¾ cup reduced-sodium soy sauce (or an allergy friendly alternative)
  • 3 doonks THM Pure Stevia Extract Powder (a doonk is 1/32 tsp.)
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. black pepper
  • 2 tsp. crushed garlic (I used Trader Joe's brand)
  • 1 tsp. dill weed
  • ½ tsp. paprika
  • ½ tsp. maple flavoring
  • Rounded ¼ tsp. xanthan gum
  1. Whisk all the marinade ingredients together except for the xanthan gum. Add the xanthan gum while whisking so it doesn't clump. Pour the marinade over the chicken in a gallon-sized Ziplock bag, squeeze the air out of the bag, and seal. Let the chicken marinade in the refrigerator for 4-6 hours at least. Grill on both sides until the chicken is done in the middle and the juices run clear. Baste the chicken with excess marinade while grilling for a more flavorful result. This chicken is also good cold the next day over salad. Yields approximately 10 servings.
