    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    If you are in a hurry and want a great marinade for chicken this is it! marinade for about 6-8 hours, no longer than 8 hours as the vinegar will start to "cook" the chicken.... I find that Kraft Italian is the best for this and by the sounds of it this marinade works on beef too so you might want to give that a try!

      This was awesome! I used the mustard and garlic powder (unfortunately my fresh garlic had gone time I will definetely add some). I had read a suggestion some where that you make slits in the chicken.....being careful not to cut all the way that the marinade could penetrate deeper and to help with the cooking time. I marinated the chicken this way for about 5 hours and it was great! Thanks for posting!

      This was a delicious marinade for chicken breasts. I halved the recipe to marinate four chicken breasts and they turned out sooo yummy. I will be using this marinade again..thank you!
