Are you looking for an easy chicken marinade to make for dinner? Grilling season is here and we couldn’t be more excited as everything tastes better on the grill! Here is a simple marinade for chicken you make right in a ziplog bag. It’s mess free and delicious!
This easy chicken marinade you can make for dinner can be made within 30 minutes or 1 day before you need to cook a meal. I usually mix the ingredients into a bowl before adding to the Ziploc bag. You can also mix the ingredients right in the bag without a bowl.
Why is marinating important anyways? Marinating your protein or vegetables will add more flavor and moisture to your meal! There is nothing worse than having a dry or unseasoned meal especially when you are very hungry. This chicken can go great with any sides! I like to include carrots, potatoes, green beans, corn or squash. Pick your favorite!
