My go-to chicken marinade for the grill



Some recipes are a delight for the eyes and the imagination, bursting off the page in a photo that's so good you feel like you could eat it. This recipe is not one of them. We can't only share the sexy recipes, you know. We need the utility players just as much.

I have no idea where I found this marinade, somewhere on the Interwebs I'm sure. But now I'll know where to find it. Right here under the recipe tab.

Ingredients
1 cup ketchup (I use Simply Heinz and do not consider non-Heinz ketchup ketchup at all)
Half cup soy sauce
Virgorous shakes of Worcestershire (new unit of measurement! Honestly, I put probably 2 TBS in)
3-4 TBS rice wine vinegar (white wine vinegar if I'm out of that)
3 TBS dijon mustard
heaping tablespoon of garlic
kosher salt or Himalayan pink salt
Pepper

I approximate these amounts, as you may have guessed.

Directions
Put them all in a big old bowl, whisk vigorously, and submerge your chicken for 2-8 hours. I like to leave it in there for a long time, and overall I prefer to use chicken thighs on the grill.

Chicken or the egg?
The stupid age old question.
Just cook both well.

What's your go-to marinade?

Wishing my fabulous Gail a fabulous 40th today.

  3. So is it sad that I think I know just what vigorous shakes of the Worcestershire sauce means? LOL! That is my kind of cooking!

  4. I've actually been thinking about the fact that we don't have a go to marinade recipe so THANK YOU for sharing!! Definitely going to try this out this week as we are having perfect grilling weather!! YUM!

  5. Italian dressing on steak, then grilled, is AMAZING. I never would've thought that until a friend made it last summer.

  6. I bet that would be good on tofu too!! I'll have to try it.

  7. Sound like the recipe I got with my Tupperware marinader. I haven't marinated chicken for quite some time. Will need to try it again.
    Chickens -feel bad eating them
    Sometimes
    Eggs- not so much.
    Love. Your. Momma.

  8. I don't have a go-to marinade. Scott usually dumps some chicken coated in olive oil on the grill and adds barbecue sauce.

  9. I think you must have read my mind! I was JUST looking for a chicken marinade. This sounds awesome.

  10. I'm so happy it's back to the time of year where you can easily grill just about every single day-- we're always pretty boring when it comes to chicken, but this sounds like such a good combo!

  11. Looks really good. My go-to is lemon with olive oil, garlic, salt and thyme or rosemary. My apartment building has a nice rooftop patio with two big grills, and this might be the perfect recipe to try on it!

  12. That sounds so delicious, and I love the fact that you used approximations! My husband is so good at making guesses for how much seasoning to add to a recipe, and it always comes out wonderfully!

  13. YUM! Sounds good - love the measuring method of "a few vigorous shakes" :)

  14. Nice! Sounds delicious and I need a better go-to marinade. I can totally relate to those vigorous shakes- it's how I always measure Worcestershire and soy sauce ;)

  15. Oooo, sounds good! I'd probably replace the dijon though with yellow mustard since I'm not the biggest fan of that flavor for whatever reason. I always like a good marinade, esp one made with things we usually have on hand.

  16. Definitely trying this-it looks so flavorful!

  17. yayy!!! i need more utility players vs pretty recipes that look amazing and special.. i want more easy go to normal simple recipes, you know? this fits the bill fabulously.

  18. Sounds easy and very tasty! Love the unit of measurement for Worcestershire. honestly most of my recipes are done in this fashion and then I have to really think about and approximate the measurement for sharing the recipes on my blog.

  19. YUM! This combines so many of my favorites! Perfect for the grilling season, and of course grill night means I don't have to cook. Win win :-D

  20. I love marinades. I love just throwing a bunch of stuff together and when it comes together I love it even more (I also love it when a plan comes together). THIS is one I'm definitely going to have to try!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Sounds really good! I feel like the most simple marinades are always the most delicious!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Always Heinz...if I see Hunts or something else, I'm likely to write off the entire meal as no good. Thanks for the marinade idea! Hopefully, I remember to use it. ;-)

  23. Seriously - WHICH?
    egg begat chicken, or else
    chicken begat egg?

  24. I have tried this marinade from you before and it's sooo good!!
