"This is a nice Mediterranean-influenced marinade. All the herbs in this recipe except for the parsley are dried herbs. This can easily be turned into a beef or lamb marinade just by changing the dry white wine to a dry red wine. "

I used this for chicken thighs which I took the skin off of before marinating. We loved the taste from the long marinading time. I did it overnight to infuse the flavors into the meat. It made a delicious meal with Greek salad to go with it!

I used the beef option with red wine. Our steak was so delicious using a Merlot. I will make it again, and try it for the pork and chicken using white wine. Can't wait!

I halved the recipe as I only had two porkchops bonein. I forgot to marinate them last night, so I did it this morning which added up to 8 hours. The recipe was flavorful on the chops but I think they should have marinated longer as they would have been more tender. I grilled them on our gas grill for 3 minutes per side on medium high heat. I served them with grilled red bell pepper and short grain brown rice. Made for Alphabet Soup tag.
