Just 4 ingredients is all you need for the best chicken marinade!
Over the weekend we fired up the grill. My husband makes the best grilled chicken. He has it down to a science.
It’s the perfect solution for when your brown sugar gets too hard for baking. It dissolves right into the liquid of the marinade. Technically speaking…I did not measure the brown sugar exact here, but that’s the beauty of cooking vs. baking, right?!
Let it marinade for at least 4 hours or best over night. Give it some time to marinate.
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup oil
- ½ cup soy sauce
- ½ cup vinegar
- Mix all ingredients together in a bowl or a ziplock bag. Place chicken in the marinade. Marinade chicken for at least 1 hour or over night.
- Here's Kyle's best grilling tips when it comes to chicken: Fire up the grill...preheat to medium high. Place the chicken breasts on the grill and do not touch them for 6 minutes. Right at 6 minutes, you flip them over and then don't touch them for another 4 to 5 minutes. Then move it over to a plate and let it rest a bit (not long) and then serve.
It’s the best grilled chicken! You’ve gotta try it!
