Clean Marinade for Chicken

I love flavorful food and don't think that chicken should be boring because you are trying to avoid sodium and chemical filled seasoning pouches. 

You can really make this your own recipe using different seasoning and spices. I love Mrs. Dash because they are only spices no salt and sugar added! Having honey in your marinades are a must it really balances out that acidic flavor from the vinegar and or citrus while giving it that beautiful charry look!

Here you can see I am *KINDA* obsessed with Mrs. Dash seasonings. the possibilities are endless. I love mixing garlic and Herb with southwestern Chipolte and fiesta lime seasoning with lime juice for a Mexican kick. I often use the Italian to mix into breadcrumbs and for Italian dishes and soups.

Hands on time: 5 Minutes Inactive time: 15-30 Min up to 1 hour  

CONTAINERS: I personally do not count this as a container because it is for a whole package of chicken. The amount you are ingesting is so minimal. This works for me but do what feels right in your journey.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 tablespoon of honey

  • 1-1.5 tablespoon of Mrs dash seasoning ( I like to mix 1/2 garlic and herb with 1/2 of another to customize my marinade)

  • Healthy pinch of salt about  1/2 tsp, some fresh ground peper

  • 2-3 tablespoons of any vinegar, lemon lime or orange

  • 2-3 Tablespoon of good quality olive oil

DIRECTIONS

  1.  Place honey in a large bowl, any combination or Mrs. Dash, salt, pepper, and vinegar or citrus juice. Wisk well
  2. Slowly pour in olive oil while whisking briskly until well combined and all live oil is incorporated.
  3. Place chicken or meat of choice into the bowl, stir to coat and let sit for a minimum of 15 minutes, cook or grill as desired. 

* Remember when taking meat off of the grill or even from the oven let it rest for about 5-10 minutes to allow the juices to redistribute though the meat. This way you whole piece of chicken will be juicy, not just the first bite. Also know that the chicken will continue to cook as it cools down a bit so take that into consideration to not over cook the chicken, ENJOY! Feel free to double this recipe if you have a lot of meat to marinate.
