Years ago I tried this recipe for a chicken marinade and it quickly became a very common go to. It’s not only delicious, but all the ingredients are typically already in my kitchen. I also (somewhat purposely) eyeball my measurements on the spices because I secretly like that it makes it different every time. This method can also be slightly maddening when it comes out awesome, yet you don’t remember what you did. Ooops.

We utilized the beautiful weather and put the chicken on the grill…but for the frigid days put it under the broiler and it’ll work just as well!
