The Best Chicken Marinade Ever!

I've been using the recipe so long that I don't even remember where it came from. I always have it in my freezer, and the recipe is burned in my mind. You can grill it or broil it--and YUM! In my opinion, it tastes better after its been frozen--the marinade kind of soaks into the meat of the chicken and flavors it as well. It works fine as a marinade that you don't freeze, but the flavor is not as intense. Oh--just a head's up--it darkens the color of the chicken as well...

  • 3 lbs chicken (we prefer bone in for this recipe)
  • 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 cup red wine vinegar
  • 3/4 cup soy sauce (use the low sodium--it doesn't change the taste and it is better for you)
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 tablespoons dry ground mustard
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 cloves garlic, pressed
  • 2 teaspoons dried parsley flakes
1. Place chicken in a gallon sized ziploc bag. Pour marinade ingredients over chicken. Smoosh together till everything is mixed. Label and freeze.

2. To serve: Thaw. Grill or broil chicken.

*The picture is one full recipe halved. As our kids have grown up and started moving out, we don't need as much. Plus, we have really started trying to follow portion guidelines (3-4 oz meat per meal). So these are quart sized bags with 5-6 bone in chicken thighs.
