Simple & Delish Chicken Marinade

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Krich

I got this recipe from my SIL. I get compliments every time I serve this. It also works well with pork. Prep time does not include marinating time.

This was really easy and really good. I didn't have any cloves, so I left them out. I also added a little fresh rosemary because it was handy. I marinated the chicken for about 5 hours, then cooked it on a George Foreman grill. It was great and I will definitely be using this again! If you use a George Foreman and your chicken is rather thick, though, pound it thinner before marinating.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix first seven ingredients together in a Ziploc bag or container with lid.
  2. Clean chicken and pound to flatten if the breasts are thick. Place in marinade.
  3. Let marinate for at least two hours. You can put meat in marinade in the morning and cook for supper without fear of over-marinating.
  4. Be sure to remove the cloves before cooking.
  5. Grill or bake chicken until done.
