Today is my last post for my week of grilling posts to help end the grilling season, whenever that may be where you live. This grilled chicken marinade is a new recipe that I tried and added to my collection.

In a bowl, add the oil, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, vinegar, lemon juice, lemon zest, pepper, parsley, mustard, garlic and honey. Whisk it all together. Set aside 1/3 cup of the chicken marinade ingredients and add the rest to a gallon sized ziploc bag.

Place the chicken in the bag, seal and coat chicken in marinade. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or up to 6 hours. However, the longer it can sit in the marinade, the better.

Grill chicken for about 4-5 minutes per side until fully cooked. It should reach an internal temperature of 165 degrees. You can check this with a meat thermometer.

Can I use this chicken marinade recipe for other meats?
Yes, this marinade works well with other meats such as pork, beef, or even seafood. Adjust the marinating time based on the type of meat.

Do I need to refrigerate the chicken while it’s marinating?
Always keep chicken in the refrigerator while marinating to keep it safe to eat and prevent bacteria from growing.

What should I do if I don’t have a grill?
If you don’t have a grill, you can use a grill pan on the stove or broil the chicken in the oven for similar results.

Should I discard the marinade after using it?
Yes, discard any leftover marinade that has been in contact with raw chicken to avoid cross-contamination. To use the marinade as a sauce, set some aside before adding the raw chicken.
