This is the best marinade! It is super simple and lots of flavor. We usually let it set overnight. I have also used this for whole chickens, cornish game hens and pork. I have added a little fresh garlic for an added flavor. ENJOY!
- In a medium sauce pans heat the juice, brown sugar and soy sauce. Remove from heat just before it boils. Let it cool a 5-10 minutes.
- Place chicken in a bowl or baggie and cover with marinade and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
- Remove chicken for marinade and cook. Do not rinse. We have grilled, baked and used our "Set it & forget it.".
Love it, love it, love it! So simple, yet delicious. I subbed in 2 Tbs of honey for the brown sugar. I grilled the chicken after marinating several hours, then at the last moment before it came off the grill, I basted it with a little reserved pineapple juice and a squirt of honey. Made a lovely glaze. This marinade recipe is a regular at my house!
For the people out there Marinating it for hours,,, Don't ! The acids in the orange juice and pineapple juice will actually start to cook your chicken after about 40 minutes,, which is the maximum I would ever go.
We really liked it we marinated it for about 3hours then grilled it. Thank you we will make again.
