    MarthaStewartWanabe's Note:

    Chicken barbecued using this marinade is d-lish! I needed a marinade for barbecued chicken but was totally out of my quick fix marinade--Italian dressing--so I threw this together. The flavor reminds me of mouth-watering, slow-barbecued firehall/church fundraiser barbecued chicken. I used 12 medium-sized drumsticks (2 per person to serve six), but you could use any chicken pieces you prefer. Please note preparation time does not include time to marinate.

    1. 1
      In a medium mixing bowl, combine all ingredients (except chicken) and whisk thoroughly.
    2. 2
      In a wide, shallow re-sealable dish, arrange chicken pieces in one layer (Note: A gallon-sized baggie could be used instead).
    3. 3
      Pour marinade over chicken pieces and cover dish.
    4. 4
      Marinate refrigerated for 2-24 hours, occasionally turning chicken pieces for full coverage.
    5. 5
      Preheat grill to medium-high heat.
    6. 6
      Grill chicken for 20-30 minutes, turning and basting with marinade every five minutes, until cooked through. Chicken is cooked through when a fork pierced through the thickest part releases clear juice, or the internal temperature reaches 170°F.
    7. 7
      Serve and enjoy!

      A great marinade! Other than using chicken pieces I made as posted - delicious chicken, moist and full of flavor, perfect for an Italian themed meal. Have this one set aside for our summer back yard cook outs. Made for the Auz/NZ swap.

      This marinate was just wonderful! I also marinated overnight. The chicken was moist, tender with a lot of flavor! I did use thighs instead of drumsticks!

      Excellant marinade - I also sometimes use bottled Italian dressing for a quick and easy marinade and this is a great alternative. The whole family enjoyed it so much, I may make it again for our 4th of July cook-out. This reminds me of a favorite marinade recipe I used years ago and lost - I'm so glad to find this one to replace it! Made and enjoyed for Aussie/NZ Recipe Swap #17.
