My favorite chicken thigh marinade
I absolutely love marinating and cooking with beer. I’ve made so many greatrecipes with it – braised beef, beer chili, beer brats, beer dip, slow cookerbeef tacos. It’s such an easy way to add flavor to a recipe, and it’snaturally acidic so it’s perfect for tenderizing meat.This marinade uses beer as it’s base, just like my grilled chicken drumsticks,I’ve instead of lemon and rosemary, I used balsamic vinegar, Worcestershiresauce, BBQ dry rub. The flavor is intense, and so so good. I know you’re goingto love it.If you don’t want to use beer in this recipe, you could substitute it with asoda. Root beer or Dr. Pepper would be great with the rest of theseingredients. I think ginger ale would work really well, too.
Can I over marinate chicken?
Yes, unfortunately, you can over marinate chicken. This is why it’srecommended to not do it for more than an overnight thing as it will be toomuch.The perfect marinade is about 4 hours (prep at lunch and serve it at dinner)this helps to give the meat a nice tender chicken without being too much ortoo little.
