A great Chicken Marinade

Yields: 4 Servings Difficulty: Medium Prep Time: 5 Mins Cook Time: 10 Mins Total Time: 15 Mins
This is a great everyday Chicken Marinade, one you make with things you’ve already got with plenty of sub options (see notes). It will make any cut of chicken extra juicy, infuse it with savoury flavour that’s a touch of sweet, with a hint of herby goodness. Especially good for chicken breast, and terrific for grilling!

Ingredients

Instructions

0/7 Instructions
  • Recommended: Pound breast to even thickness using a meat pounder, rolling pin, or fist. OR cut large ones in half horizontally to form 2 cutlets (steaks) for each.
  • Mix marinade in a ziplock bag (or container in which chicken fits snugly). Add chicken.
  • Marinate 3 hours to overnight, though even 30 minutes is effective. (Note 2)
  • Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat, and cook chicken per times below until deep golden (see video). If browning too quickly, lower heat.
  • Transfer to serving plate, cover loosely with foil and rest for 3 minutes before serving, garnished with parsley and lemon slices if desired.
  • Cook times
  • Whole breast and boneless thighs: 3 - 4 minutes each side (internal temp 165F/75C)
  • Cutlets and tenderloin - 2 minutes each side
