Olive oil, smoked paprika, and garlic&herb seasoning


If I’m feeling real lazy – zesty italian dressing


For about 2 pounds of chicken: 1/3 c. Olive oil, 3 TBSP lemon juice, 3 TBSP soy sauce, 2 TBSP balsamic vinegar, 1/4 c. brown sugar, 1 TBSP Worcestershire sauce, 3 garlic cloves minced, 1 1/2 tsp salt, 1 tsp pepper I found the recipe online somewhere and have it written down as my favorite marinade. I grill it (makes the flames kick up pretty high) and it’s delicious!


My personal favorite is to make a sauce (it can be used as a marinade but I find it works better as a sauce) with equal parts pineapple juice and bbq sauce, Creole seasoning, hot sauce, and honey. This makes a incredible sweet and spicy punch to have with your chicken. alternatively if i don’t make a sauce/marinade, I season my chicken with salt, pepper, creole seasoning, chili powder, garlic powder, chicken seasoning, and occasionally i throw some honey on top for sweetness.


Garlic, ginger, onion powder, soy sauce, little sesame oil, (mirrin or ( rice vinegar + sugar))
