It can also then be grilled or made in the Ninja Foodi Grill too.
How long should you marinate chicken?
It’s best to marinate chicken for several hours, for this particular recipe we like to keep it in the fridge for about 4 hours. It can be left there longer too.
I find it’s best to get it prepped and ready in the morning, then place it in the fridge. That means around dinner time, it’s ready to grill.
Why is it good to marinate chicken?
This marinade gives the chicken a great flavor and keeps it nice and moist. That means it will not dry out like a simply seasoned piece of chicken.
The marinade is best done chilled in the fridge as well, do not try to reuse it, remember you are soaking raw meat.
Can you use various cuts of chicken?
This recipe can be made with a variety of cuts of chicken such as Chicken Tenders, Chicken Breast, and Chicken Thighs. It can also be done in a more shallow bowl with a whole chicken as well.
We prefer to use chicken thighs as they tend to be juicer than chicken breast, and they do not dry out like chicken breast tends to do.
This marinade is a great one to use some fresh herbs from the garden with. It is a wonderful way to add flavor to the chicken.
