Home > Chili > Fresh Oregano Citrus Marinade


This is my little slice of foodie heaven, my herb garden.  And yes, I did lay down in the wet grass to take this picture.  See what I will do for you people.

You’re going to be getting a lot of recipes from me this summer using fresh herbs. I’ve got oregano, parsley, thyme, two types of sage, chives, cilantro, tons of basil, dill and rosemary.

This recipe uses a lot of fresh oregano and the flavor really stands up to grilling.  It was delicious.  I served it with some thin spaghetti that I tossed in butter, oil fresh parsley and more oregano.  Oregano citrus marinade for chicken
