Chicken marinade

It seems these days that every kid and his brother ( and I am not restricting that statement to just celebrity chefs or actors) claims to have the “best marinade” for chicken,beef,lamb or whatever. Grocery stores and gourmet shops are even jumping on the bandwagon with their own brand of marinades that they have made for them and with those you take your chances on what ingredients are in them to give them a long shelf life.

While this particular marinade is mine I will not claim that it is the best you have ever tried but I will promise it to be “simple and tasty” and one where you know exactly what ingredients are in it. The simplicity of this marinade is also what makes it stand out because there are onlyingredients and they are, for the most part, ingredients you already have in your pantry so here is my take on Chicken Marinade.

Ingredients:

1/4 cup Extra Virgin olive oil

2 garlic cloves — chopped

2 to 3 tablespoons chopped Sage — I use Pineapple Sage when I can because it adds another flavor element

Salt and Pepper to taste

Putting it together:

In a non reactive bowl mix all the ingredients together

Store in a sealed container until ready to use

So as you can see I kept my promise to keep this recipe “simple but tasty”  not to mention inexpensive to make and this particular marinade can be used on Turkey as well. The other thing to point out is that the longer you leave the marinade the better it will taste since the flavors will have a chance to marry

So there you have it another “simple but tasty recipe for the grilling season and beyond”

 

So until next time…………
