This past year I got in a funk about meals because of needing to eat healthier. My chicken meals were the worst and we eat alot of chicken. I had to quit buying marinades for chicken due to the sodium content (just check out the label). So I finally decided to make my own marinades (testing them on my family). Here is a recipe that everyone seems to like:
1/4 c. vinegar
3 tsp. dijon mustard
4 cloves garlic
1 lime juiced
1 lemon juiced
* Did you know that you can freeze Lemons and Limes whole for juicing purposes only. So when there on sale buy several to have on hand for recipes.
1/2 c. brown sugar
1 tsp Kosher salt
6 tbsp Olive Oil
1/4 tsp pepper
*adjust whatever to your families tastes
I pound out 8 chicken breast slightly, throw them into a Gallon ziplock bag and marinate for 2 hours to overnight. The longer you marinate the better the chicken. When done marinating just grill. This is kinda a sweet marinade so I would serve this with either a salad or green beans.
I will post more marinades as I make them up and test them on my family!
