I’m no chef. In fact, cooking is a chore to me. Like I wish I could be a morning person, I so wish I loved to cook. But I cook because I have to, and in doing so, have a few tasty but easy recipes up my sleeve. Who doesn’t need another chicken recipe? (Well, maybe vegetarians. But you know what I’m sayin’.)
Super Simple Sweet Chicken Marinade
Boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Cook’s note: You’ll notice that I have no amounts here because I’ve found that you can’t really screw it up. Use roughly 1/4 c of oil and 1/3 c each of honey and soy sauce for about four chicken breasts, and add and subtract as you wish based on the amount of chicken you have.
1. Bash the chicken breasts with a meat mallet to your desired thinness.
2. Mix honey, soy sauce and canola in the bottom of a 9-x-13 pan or in a plastic storage bag.
3. Add chicken to marinade mixture. Marinate for a couple of hours or overnight; overnight is ideal.
4. Grill chicken until done.
This seriously makes one moist and flavorful chicken breast. You can eat the chicken on its own (quinoa and a veggie make excellent sides), as a sandwich, or use as protein in your version of a big-ass salad. Delish!
Do you have any super-simple marinade ideas to share? I’d love to add to my recipe book! —Erin
