At Costa Vida, one of our most loved ingredients is our all-natural chicken. Every day, we craft this marinade from scratch, blending spices and natural seasonings to add healthy flavor to our chicken. We hand-slice against the grain to give you the most tender grilled chicken for your burritos, salads, and more. We know you’ll enjoy serving this chicken from your home grill to your friends and family.

Chicken Marinade Recipe


3 lbs. fresh chicken breast

½ cup pure olive oil

1 Tablespoon fresh garlic, minced

¼ cup all purpose seasoning

1 Tablespoon Kosher Salt

Juice of 2 Lemons


Rinse your chicken and pat it dry. Set aside.

Combine all ingredients, except the chicken, in a large mixing bowl. Whisk to combine completely.  Add chicken to the marinade bowl. Using clean hands, tongs, or a large rubber spatula, mix chicken and marinade until every piece of chicken is completely covered in the marinade. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap (or pour marinade and chicken into a large gallon-size Ziploc bag).

Let rest in the refrigerator for 30-45 minutes. Fire up the grill and post your grilled chicken creations @CostaVida #CostaVida!
