Marinating Chicken
Is there a rule of thumb for how much marinade needed for each pound of chicken?

We're planning a rehearsal dinner for my son's wedding and plan on grilling chicken for 120 guests.

This is a vegetable marinade recipe we would like to use for the chicken:
!/2 c. olive oil
1/4 c. lemon juice
1 lg. garlic clove crushed
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper

What would be the calculations of marinade and chicken? We plan to do a combination of boneless, skinless breasts and thighs.

Thank you so much for your help,

If you are going to grill at the time, it will take a minimum of 3 people working the grill fulltime to feed this many people in a timely fashion.

You need about 1 recipe this amount for every 5 pounds of chicken, if you do it by putting everything in ziplocks. This takes less marinade than the old bowl method.
