Lemon Marinade for Chicken (Omac)

“This quick and easy recipe is perfect for OMAC users. I found this recipe in one of my favorite cookbooks from Vancouver author/chef/and fireman, David Veljacic. There is a nice balance of flavors between the lemon juice, olive oil and brown sugar. This recipe reminds me of a long lost recipe my DM used to make....so it does bring back childhood memories of days gone by! This is a family favorite.....I hope it becomes one of your!!!”
