This is a very good marinade for chicken. I found that I preferred to mix mine in a food processor and add some mayo for a traditional chicken salad. Putting that on a bed of lettuce is amazing. Having it as a salad is good too. Try a Mexican chipotle dressing on it for a great flavorful burst. It has amazing flavors that you won’t be able to get enough of.
