Grilled Chicken Marinade with Pepper and Garlic

An easy grilled chicken marinade with garlic and black pepper.
Prep Time 5 minutes


  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • ½ cup white wine vinegar
  • 2 -4 tablespoons of pre-chopped garlic in a jar; or use a whole head of fresh rough chopped garlic
  • 2 teaspoons of kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons of black pepper


  • Mix all marinade ingredients into a zip top bag and mix well.
  • Add chicken to the marinade and mix well.
  • Let the chicken marinate for at least 2 hours and up to about 8 hours.
  • Grill chicken until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees.


No matter how good your marinade is, if you over cook the chicken it will be awful. So focus on that internal temperature!
