Easy Chicken Marinade

Good morning everyone! One of the most exciting things for me, as far as my recovery goes, was the day when I could start cooking and baking again. I've always loved to bake and since marrying Mojo I've fallen in love with cooking as well.

I was getting some chicken ready for a few recipes yesterday and decided to share with you my go to marinade. This is such a delicious marinade and it's so easy! I always have these ingredients on hand and it takes 5 minutes to throw together.

The best part is that you can customize it to the tastes of your family. I love A-1 Steak Sauce, so when I make this marinade I like to have that be the main focus. Mojo loves Worcestershire sauce so when he makes it that usually takes center stage. 

I don't have any specific measurements, I usually just add a little of this and that until I have enough to cover as many chicken breasts as I'm doing. 

As far as the vinegar goes, you just want to use a few splashes. You need a little acidity to help break the chicken down just enough to make it super juicy. If you don't have vinegar or you want something a little sweeter, I also like to use a can of sprite.

I always put my chicken on a cookie sheet while it's in the fridge. There have been to many times where the bag breaks and I'm stuck cleaning up a huge mess in the fridge.

Cook them up on the grill, pair it with rice or pasta, and voila dinner is served. Enjoy!

This looks amazing. My husband is obsessed with chalula sauce right now. He puts it on everything! I'll have to try this for sure.
