I love marinated chicken, but I never buy commercial marinades. They’re full of high fructose corn syrup and a lot of other unnecessary ingredients. This is a healthy chicken marinade.
So, I mixed up my own marinade. This is so yummy!
Recipe Collection: Chicken Marinade
It works to grill it, bake it, make sandwiches, add to salads, etc.
We eat it at least once every couple of weeks.
- Juice of 1 lemon
- 1 cup of water
- ¼ cup of onion, minced*
- 1 clove garlic, minced*
- ¼ tsp. red pepper flakes
- ½ tsp. sea salt
- ½ tsp. thyme
- ¼ tsp. sage
- 1/4 tsp. marjoram
Mix all ingredients together, then add chicken. Marinate at least 6 hours, or better, 24 hours. Cook as desired.
*It’s not important to mince if you don’t intend to use the marinade in any sort of sauce. Rough chop is fine.
You can also add a bit of tomato juice or sauce for a bit of a different flavor. Yummy!
Can you freeze this? Or is it better to cook it then freeze it? Planning on starting gaps so I’m trying to prep!
