Step-by-step instructions!

Follow our easy instructions for success!

First, whisk together all of the marinade ingredients in a bowl.


Add chicken to a large resealable bag or container. Pour marinade over chicken and seal.


Remove the marinated chicken from the refrigerator and set it at room temperature for 20 minutes before cooking or grilling.


For a more tender and juicy piece of chicken, marinate it for at least one hour but no longer than four hours.

Do not poke holes in your chicken breasts to marinate them. This can cause issues when grilling as the juices may drain out through the holes.
