This chicken marinade recipe is a delicious way to keep your chicken dishes from getting boring.

Chicken tends to be a big part of clean eating. Especially those boneless, skinless chicken breasts you can buy in large quantities at usually reasonable prices. But after a while, all that chicken can get a little boring. So I’ve always made it a point to come up with new ways to prepare chicken in general.

So with my latest dive into the world of marinades, I obviously had to come up with one for chicken as well.

CHICKEN MARINADE RECIPE

This Chicken Marinade Recipe is a simple yet tasty marinade that will keep “yet another night of chicken”, interesting and enjoyable. Once marinated, you can fry, bake or barbecue, whatever you feel like doing! Just remember that if you want to barbecue the chicken, you’ll want to reserve some of the marinade for basting.

If you bake this in the oven, then all that marinade becomes delicious sauce to pour over rice, cauli-rice, or even veggies! Just don’t use it as sauce if it hasn’t been cooked. You don’t want to end up with raw chicken juice on your cooked food. Be safe and enjoy your next night of chicken!

P.S. – This would make a yummy marinade for veggies too!
