Aunt Diane’s Chicken Marinade

Just in time for that Labor Day cookout, I’ve got a chicken marinade that’s gonna kick your chicken up a notch, to quote a phrase.  This comes from my aunt and it’s what she makes for her Labor Day get-together.  You can’t go wrong with this chicken ~ it’s good fresh off the grill and as leftovers straight from the fridge.  Try it in sandwiches, on pizza, or in a salad.  From what I’ve been told, it’s best to let your chicken marinate overnight to get the best flavor.  Have a great weekend!

Recipe:  Aunt Diane’s Chicken Marinade

several pounds of chicken pieces of your choosing

1 1/2 Tbsp. poultry seasoning

1 1/2 Tbsp. paprika

1/4 c. pepper

1/4 c. salt

5 eggs

12 oz. vegetable or canola oil

3 c. apple cider vinegar

Place chicken in deep baking dish.  Whisk all ingredients together and pour over chicken; cover.  Allow chicken to marinate as long as possible, up to 24 hours.  Grill.   (This makes about 6 cups of marinade.  I poured most of it over the chicken, but saved some for basting during the last 20 minutes the chicken was on the grill.)

    Krystle – We eat so much chicken, that a new way to make it’s always welcome around here too.

    Ingrid – Yea, yea, I “borrowed” a phrase from Emeril. It fits though.

    ovenhaven – This is always a hit. You’ll love it.
