Grilled Chicken Marinade

Fire up the grill and add a little extra flavour and savour to your next BBQ with Summer Savory essential oil! This marinade for grilled chicken is simple and delicious. Summer savory is a bushy annual herb often used in cooking. Its warm aroma is sometimes compared to Oregano or Thyme.
