This recipe is based on a base dressing that one of my gym friend’s mum came up with. It is so versatile you can change up the flavours to anything you like. It also works on all kinds of meat. I have used it on chicken breasts and steaks. You could even use it as a fancy salad dressing.
- 1/2 Cup of Olive Oil
- 1/4 Cup of Coconut Aminos
- 1 heaped tsp of finely chopped basil
- 1 large or 2 small garlic cloves minced
- 2 tbsp orange juice
- zest of 1 orange
Place all ingredients in a protein shake container with one of those spiral ball thingies in it. Close the lid tightly and shake vigorously until all ingredients combined.
How to Cook Using the Marinade
Place meet in a large ziplock bag or airtight container. Pour marinade over the meat, ensure the meat is covered evenly and seal the bag/container. Let it marinate in the fridge for a couple of hours if possible.
If you are cooking chicken breast, pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees celsius and place the marinaded chicken breast into a baking dish.
Bake for 20-25 minutes or until marinade is browning and getting nice and sticky!
