Made by You Monday -- Chicken Marinade

This is my favorite marinade for just about anything, but especially chicken. It tastes wonderful whether baked or grilled, and I always seem to have the ingredients on hand. The chicken is terrific on its own or on a nice salad. (I'm on vacation this week scuba diving in Cozumel. See you all next week, hopefully with a completed baby blanket to share!)

Chicken Marinade

4 Tablespoons canola oil
4 Tablespoons soy sauce
2 Tablespoons lemon juice
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon basil
3 whole cloves
1 Tablespoon brown sugar
dash of coarse ground black pepper

Mix all ingredients together and pour over 1 pound chicken (breasts, tenderloins, pieces -- whatever!). Marinate for at least 2 hours or up to overnight. Grill or bake chicken. Serves 4.
