Marinating Chicken - skinless or not??

Quest from cook with very limit ability.
Was going to try recipe out of paper.
Says marinate chicken breasts with skin on for up to 12hours.
Does it matter if you use skinless? , what (apart from fat content) would be difference if used ones with skin on.
Marinade is lemon juice, olive oil, paprika & cumin.

Also marinade time will only be 4-5 hours, would that be long enough, it says maximum time but not minium.

It does not matter if with or without skin however without skin can make the chicken dry. Keep an eye on it and may be cook it 5 mins less. The reason it say marinate only for 4 - 5 hours is becuase the marinade contains lemon juice which is acidic and can cook the chicken. Between 2 - 4 hours should be plenty
