This marinade had a nice flavor. I used 1 TBS brown sugar. I think that the beer that I used had a strong flavor because the beer taste was very dominant in the chicken. I don't know for sure because I don't drink beer. Next time I will try to find a lighter flavored beer for this marinade.
A very good marinade. I used a very small onion, bottled minced garlic, splenda instead of brown sugar, 1/2 tsp of tabasco, and 1 bottle of michelob ultra (the lower cal/low carb beer)! I grilled mine after about 8 hours marinating. My husband was upset that I didn't make a bigger batch! Thank you for this recipe.
