This simple chicken marinade for meal prep will quickly become a favorite. Easy and flavorful, perfect for batch-cooking chicken to enjoy all week long.



11.5 pounds chicken breasts (I buy thin-sliced or cut thicker breasts in half)
2 Tbsp avocado oil
2 Tbsp lemon juice, freshly squeezed
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp salt


  1. Place chicken in a ziploc bag.
  2. Add oil and lemon juice.
  3. In a ramekin, add spices and stir to combine. Pour spice mixture into the bag.
  4. Toss and shake well, moving the chicken around with your hands to ensure the spices coat the chicken.
  5. Marinate at least 4 hours or overnight.
  6. Cook chicken as desired.
