This is one of my husband's recipes. He used a scottish wee heavy for the beer. This is not a recipe on how to cook your chicken, but just how to prepare it. You can grill, bake, fry or whatever after it's done soaking, although we normally grill. My husband soaks the chicken in a large container that he sits in the refrigerator.


  1. Combine all the ingredients and let the chicken soak for at least 4-6 hours, preferably longer.

Tried this for chicken breasts to be used in chicken salad. Had a great taste. Would definitely use this recipe again for roasted chicken.

I loved this marinade. I only had 2 chicken breasts so cut down on the marinade and had to use garlic powder. I did put in the red pepper flakes. I'll be using this one next week with the other half of the beer. Delicious!

Rated this 4 stars on ingredients alone and I would love to try it. But is it simmered in the marinade or drained and then fried or barbecued?
