Two Marinade Techniques
I like to marinade in a plastic ziplock type bag so that I can get the air out of the bag and move the meat around to guarantee total coverage.
Chicken should sit in the marinade for a minimum of 20 minutes, though 2 hours works best in my experience. More than 12 hours and you risk over-saturation of the flavor and the texture of the meat can be negatively affected.
Hot Tip!These recipes are designed for 2-3 pounds (1kg to 1.5kg) of meat. Double, or triple, the recipe if cooking for a crowd.
The Chicken Marinades
Easy Classic Japanese
These chicken marinade recipes are really just a starting point. Feel free to add/remove/adjust ingredients as desired. Grilling is a lot about personal taste so explore the possibilities! You never have to settle for simple grilled chicken again if you have 20 minutes and a few ingredients in your kitchen.
