  • In a medium size bowl, combine the orange, lemon, and lime juice and zest.
  • Whisk in the coriander, pepper, onion salt, parsley, basil, olive oil, and honey.
  • Remove about ¼ cup of the mixture and save for later.
  • Add the pounded chicken to the remaining marinade and make sure it is evenly coated.
  • Refrigerate for at least 2 hours but preferably overnight.
