Easy Bbq Chicken Marinade

READY IN: 1hr 3mins
Recipe by StylinDog

Came up with this one on the fly. This quantity of ingredients will be sufficient marinade for 4 drumsticks. I like to use zipper-seal bags for marinating because the air can be removed so that the meat is surrounded by marinade, which means I can throw it into the fridge and forget about it until cooking time. I get a nice, even marinade on every piece without any extra fuss. Plus, it is one less dish to wash after.

VERY moist! Knife slid right through it. Even a day later, the meat is nice and tender. I didn't have the vinegar and had to use ketchup instead of the BBQ sauce as a base, so it was a bit bland. That was my problem, not the recipe's. I put it all in a ziplock overnight in the fridge, turning every few hours. I had to bake mine in the oven at 350 degrees for 40 minutes, using boneless breasts. I turned once halfway through. I will be making this again next week with BBQ sauce and with the vinegar.
