Great Chicken Marinade

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Bina n SC

This was my grandfather's recipe, and has been a family favorite for years. The flavor is fabulous! “I failed to include crushed garlic in the recipe, since it is not written in the original, but I often crush 3-4 garlic cloves into the marinade. The chicken is great either way, but we are garlic lovers.” — (Let me also encourage you NOT to try this if you do not want to experience the punch that the vinegar brings to the final result.)

This is just what I was looking for! My family raved about the flavor and thought the vinegar was such a compliment to the chicken. I baked it in the oven on a cookie sheet as my grill was disabled, and it was great. I marinated the chicken pieces overnight. I sprinkled it with paprika for color. The cook said she preferred it with garlic which I included and I'm sure I will continue to use the garlic. I questioned the need for an egg, but used it exactly as the recipe called for. It was really wonderful and we will probably use this recipe often.
