Homemade Chicken Marinade

Do you typically buy marinades already made up at the grocery store? Don’t worry, if you answered
yes – I was the same way. One day while my mum and I were at the grocery store I was looking for
a marinade to use on chicken. While reading the nutritional facts and ingredients, I was completely
turned off. Summer is here, which means it’s grilling season and marinades are a critical part of the
grilling process. That being said I decided to try and whip up my own marinade and the results were
better than I thought they’d ever be. My dad even tried the chicken (and he is ridiculously picky) and
loved it. If you’re looking for a delicious marinade to get the juiciest most flavorful chicken, I highly
recommend the chicken marinade below.
Chicken Marinade
5 pounds of chicken breast, cut thinly
½ cup oil (I used canola)
½ cup balsamic vinegar*
¼ cup lite soy sauce
¼ cup Worcestershire sauce
⅛ cup of lemon juice (i used organic)
¾ cup dark brown sugar
2 Tbsp Dijon mustard
2 Tbsp fresh rosemary
2 tsp garlic powder
Dash of black better

1. Combine all ingredients in a large Ziplock bag.
2. Add chicken to the bag.
3. Place closed Ziplock bag in a large bowl.
4. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours (overnight is best)

*Balsamic vinegar offers the best flavor, but if you want to change up the flavor a little
use apple cider vinegar.
