Because I'm hungry and it's almost lunch.........
 
Any of you got any good marinade recipes for grilling some chicken?

I've been searching online for some and would like to know what you guys like to douse the bird with.

Got anything good? I'll be grilling some chicken later this week and would like to know what to pick up on the way home.



Something I've realized you don't do at work when you're hungry........

LOL.

I cooked up 6 chicken breast tenderloins this morning while I made eggs, sausage, toast (and coffee) for my wife. That is all I eat 8a - 5pm Monday thru Friday.....chicken. :chuckle: Needless to say I would love some input too!

As you probably know, Steelerstrength is a world champion bodybuilder and eats a lot of chicken. I know he has some very good chicken marinades/recipes. :thumbsup:

Depends on what you're going for when you like your chicken.

I like to take a barbecue sauce (Sweet Baby Ray's is the best IMO) and a good Rub (Canadian Steak Seasoning) and combine the two.

The salt from the rub will keep most of the juices inside the bird and give you a very pasty coating. (This is for when you forget to actually prepare a marinade, which I often do.) It's good with Steak/Ribs as well.

Some good marinades...

If you're into spicy chicken (or steak/ribs)

I like to layer the bottom of a baking dish with some thinly sliced sweet onions. Take half a jar of jalapenos and layer the onions with the peppers. I place the chicken on top of the veggies and then dump the rest of the jar (juice and all) on top. Cover and chill in the fridge for 24 hours. I have a small "marinade" fridge so that the smells don't get into the rest of the food. If possible, consider doing that as well.

Holy Smokes! Thats some serious eating there! I got full just reading that menu! LOL

I had Banana Nut Cherrios and skim milk around 5:30 myself. Your menu sounded better by far!

Man, that sounds good. I'm not really all that into "hot" spicy stuff. I like to keep my "A" player cool, calm and collective, if ya know what I mean! :wink02:

I think I'm beginning to regret only having those grapefruit halves for lunch. But I got a 3k coming up in 2 weeks, so I'm trying to "lighten" the load so I don't look too pathetic out there versus my daughter. Thats why the chicken is hitting the menu big time.

Obviously, I'm a spice nut:

SPICY CHICKEN MARINADE/BASTING SAUCE

1/2 c. Zesty Italian salad dressing
1/4 tsp. Tabasco sauce
1/4 tsp. red pepper
1/2 tsp. crushed garlic
1/4 c. lemon juice
1/4 c. wine vinegar

Place contents into small saucepan. Bring to boil, stirring continuously. May be used to baste chicken while barbecuing or broiling, or as a marinade by placing mixture in baking dish and soaking chicken for 30 to 45 minutes, turning once, prior to cooking

Sorry, the last post won't do you much good...the nice part about my BBQ/Rub mix is it's not spicy. (My wife is a spice wuss, so if she can handle it, you should be able to as well.)

Most of my family (especially my brother's who don't care for spicy food) enjoy this one:

FAJITA MARINADE FOR BEEF, CHICKEN, OR
PORK

1/2 c. olive oil
1/3 c. lime juice
1 tsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. cumin
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 lbs. skirt steak, chicken breast (deboned), or pork tenderloin
1/4 c. vinegar
1/2 c. chopped onion
1 tsp. oregano
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/2 tbsp. paprika
1 can beer
1 lg. onion, sliced
Flour tortillas

Mix all spices together. Add beer to complete the marinade. Add meat.

Last recommended chicken dish:

MARINADE FOR CHICKEN

2/3 c. orange juice
3 tbsp. lemon juice
3 tbsp. lime juice
2 tbsp. honey
1/4 c. corn oil
1 tsp. Mrs. Dash

Mix together. Place chicken in container, pour mixture over chicken. Marinade 2 or 3 hours or overnight. Grill or broil.

(I double up on the honey to thicken it a bit more...but as with all recipes, adjust to taste.)

After your 3K, celebrate with:

S3X IN A PAN

1 devils food cake mix (can be delight)
1 jar Caramel Butterscotch Topping
1 can Eagle Brand sweetened condensed milk
1 (12 oz.) pkg. semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 (8 oz.) containers Cool Whip
4 regular size Snicker candy bars (freeze)

Prepare cake mix according to the directions on the package. (Bake in a 13x9 inch cake pan.) Remove cake from oven when done; make holes in cake with a straw. Pour butterscotch topping on cake.
Place cake back in warm oven - making sure the oven is turned off - for 10 minutes. Remove cake and pour sweetened condensed milk over top. Put chocolate chips over milk. Put 2 containers of Cool Whip on top of chocolate chips. Break SNICKERS® bars with a hammer and put on top of the Cool Whip. Place in refrigerator until ready to eat. This is better if made the day before.
