Ginger-Rum Marinade

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Gingerbear

This is a wonderful marinade. I loved it. This is good for up to 1 or 2 lbs of meat but I always make more. I like to have extra just incase.

I tried this marinade on chicken breasts. For some reason, the chicken had a very odd texture after grilling. Don't know if the rum disintigrated the chicken or I left it to marinade too long (6 hours). I may try it again on beef, but never again on chicken.
