About marinating...

So, I have this great recipe for Chicken which calls for me to marinate lemon zest, grated ginger and crushed garlic.


How is this a marinade? How are the flavours going to transfuse into the chicken without a sauce--or greater liquid to "carry them"? This stuff is just sitting on the skin!

I put it all in a plastic bag to help maybe fumigate the chicken with the flavours of the ingredients, but I have my doubts this is going to be as tasty as I'd thought.

Can anyone help me understand this?

I hope I was clear!

Yes, I want to smoosh! Some olive oil would be perfect. Thanks slw!

I just re-read the blasted recipe and it's going to take an hour to cook (after 2 hours to marinate)--so, I started too late for tonight's supper. (Daughter has to go to Guides, tonight, and the Boy to Scouts.)

Blast--but it should be delish tomorrow night!
