World's Best Chicken Marinade

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by StayHome Chef

I came up with this a few years ago and always receive rave reviews. The heat of your chicken really depends on your brand of hot sauce, so use your discretion. I've also found that each brand of garlic salt has its own level of saltiness, so please use caution here as well. Enjoy!

All I can say is WOW! I made this tonight for some friend's and family for our pre-fourth of July party and it was a hit! The only thing I changed was using Cholula (hot sauce) and garlic powder mixed with salt instead of going out to buy the suggested garlic salt. I can't wait to make this again! Thanks Stay@Home!
