Spicy Grilling Marinade for Chicken and Seafood

Total Time

Nice easy marinade. Toss the food to be marinated in the mixture, mix well and refrigerate for 2-24 hours. TIP: Here is a trick I like to use for whenever I buy meats, or poultry that I intend on freezing. I like to buy in bulk, but since I usually only make dinners for two I freeze the meat in ziplock bags. For example you can usually fit 1-2 chicken breasts in a ziplock bag. I put these bags in the freezer and when I want to use them I can grab the serving size I need without having to pry the meat apart. The best part of this ziplock bag method is it makes it so easy to marinate! Just take out a bag before going to work, add your favorite marinade to the bag and put the sealed bag in the fridge. When you get home from work it is ready to cook!

great idea to put the marinade right in the bag! I do the same as you in separating the bulk packages, and use the bags. I'm going to do some right now and am glad I saw this1 thanks

Absolutely loved this marinade. I also added some Tex-Mex seasoning I had & cut back the hot sauce abit. I used it on chicken & it turned out yummy! Thanks for sharing.
