This week's Tried & True is another recipe shared by one of my best friends years ago, in Maryland. This is the same friend that shared her mom's Crazy Cake recipe - so it's a good one! It's a marinade that my family loves so much, the last time I made it, they requested the chicken two days in a row...it's that good! The marinade isn't too hot, with a tangy delicious taste!
The recipe didn't have a name, so I decided to call it, Kickin' Chicken Marinade! The marinade is so simple to throw together, with only FOUR fabulous ingredients!
When I was given the recipe, no measurements were given. All I was told, was to use a lot of Frank's RedHot, some olive oil, a good amount of lime juice, and a little garlic - cloves or powder. My friend doesn't measure, she just throws it all together.
There are no rules for the amount of each ingredient,
but here are the measurements I use:
Kickin' Chicken Marinade
2-3 lbs of Chicken (breast, thighs, drumsticks, wings ~ bone-in or boneless)
1 Cup Frank's RedHot Original
1/4 Cup Olive Oil
1/4 Cup Lime Juice (fresh is best, but bottle is good too)
2 Cloves of Garlic, miced or pressed (you can use garlic powder)
Lime - cut into slices
In a medium size bowl, mix RedHot, olive oil, lime juice and garlic. Place chicken in a pan, bowl or ziploc bag and pour marinade over top, making sure the chicken is submerged in the marinade. Marinade for four hours in the fridge. Remove chicken from marinade and grill. The chicken is great with fresh lime juice squeezed on top! Enjoy!
I'll be sharing this recipe at these great parties:
Thanks so much for visiting!
