Easy Chicken Marinades


Marinade Tips:

  • Marinade for 1-24 hours in the fridge or store right away in the freezer (store up to 3 months)

  • I always marinate my chicken in a plastic bag, but I also set those baggies in on a plate or in a bowl when sitting in the fridge. This is just in case of a leak, because it can be a nightmare to clean up

  • To thaw from the freezer, place the chicken in the fridge overnight

  • If storing in the freezer, make sure to also label with the date to remind you of how long it has been in there
