Chicken Marinade



It really doesn't matter what the outside temperature is doing;

we like to grill!

Since it's the Mr. that stands out in the cold,

or heat,

or mist,

or snow,

or rain,

I'm always game to throw something on the grill for dinner!

The other day, when shopping for groceries, I noticed the store didn't carry my favorite marinade.

But they had another marinade from a brand that I like that sells BBQ sauce.

Plus, it is a local brand, and I like shopping local.

So I bought the new brand marinade.

But I didn't like it.

Matter of fact, the Mr. and cherubs didn't like it either.

Not that it was bad, because we wouldn't know.

Because it had no taste.

None.

I'm not into tasteless marinade.

So now, with no marinade in the house and chicken thawed out,

I needed a marinade.

I remembered a teriyaki  marinade that I used to make,

but couldn't find the recipe.

Then I remembered another one.

This one is delicious.

I tweeked it just a bit, because I wanted to.

You can do the same if you feel like it.

I think this might become my new favorite marinade,

even over the other favorite marinade!

At dinner, everyone commented on how yummy it was!

The next day, I made a double recipe to store in the refrigerator,

just so that I'd have some when we I wanted to grill!

Chicken Marinade

1/4 cup oil
1/2 cup soy sauce (I used gluten free)
2 TBSP Worcestershire sauce (I used gluten free)
2 TBSP water
1 TBSP brown sugar (or white if you're out of brown)*
1/2 tsp. onion powder
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/8 tsp. ground ginger**

Place all of the ingredients in a jar and shake to mix.

Pour desired amount over your favorite meat and marinade.

Discard any marinade after using.

*If this amount seems too sweet for your taste, just reduce by 1/2.
**I omit this occasionally.  Not everyone prefers the taste of ginger.
