This is my family’s favorite marinated chicken! It is so tender and full of flavor. The marinade is a snap to whip up and grilling time is minimal.
It is grilling season! With the upcoming summer weather and traditional grilling holidays upon us I wanted to share my family’s favorite chicken marinade. We actually eat this marinated chicken year round. I have my trusty George Foreman grill that cooks this chicken up quite nicely. This recipe is easily doubled or cut in half which is handy. I like to use chicken tenderloin strips instead of chicken breasts because they are more tender. Also, they are more kid friendly size/portions and are easier to cut up for little kids. However, this works perfectly fine with chicken breasts as well. Hope everyone has a fantastic Memorial Day weekend and I’ll be back Tuesday with a new recipe!
After you whisk together the marinade, all you need is thawed, raw chicken tenders or breasts. Place the chicken in a gallon size ziploc bag.
Pour the marinade over the chicken in the bag and zip it shut. Place in the fridge for at least 4 hours but for best results 6 hours. Fire up the grill and grill each chicken piece a few minutes on each side until chicken is cooked through (an internal temp of 165 degrees). Grilling times will vary depending on if you use tenders or breasts.
