A simple and flavorful chicken marinade that will quickly become a favorite.
This chicken marinade is totally versatile and will become your go to marinade.
A good chicken marinade is an essential part of any cooking repertoire. It’s a quick and easy way to pull dinner together. This chicken marinade can be changed up a lot of different ways. I usually use Dijon but a stone ground mustard, spicy brown or regular yellow mustard will work too.
You can also switch out your vinegar. I usually use apple cider vinegar but balsamic vinegar would give it a nice flavor and sometimes I use red or white wine vinegar. The recipe calls for brown sugar but honey will also work. You’ve got lots of flexibility to use what you have on hand or play around with your flavor combinations.
This chicken marinade is the perfect one to use for any dish you want to add a little more flavor to. I often just marinade my chicken breasts, grill them or bake them and then serve them with some rice pilaf or yummy potato dish. The chicken is flavorful enough to dice up and add into pasta, onto a taco or anyway you like to eat your chicken.
One of my favorite ways to use this chicken marinade is for chicken tostadas. I’ll be sharing this easy, quick, go to family dinner idea tomorrow!
Use this chicken marinade to add some chicken in this Spinach Apple Salad.
