BBQ and Mustard Chicken Marinade is absolutely AMAZING!! What is even better is that you can make this marinade to be Paleo, Keto and Whole30 compliant. Adding marinade is simple way to change up a boring dinner and add great flavor. Make this with a compliant BBQ Sauce and Mustard. Another option is to use a half a cup of the The New Primal Nobel Made Mustard BBQ Sauce. In addition to the New Primal, there is Tessemaes BBQ sauce that is delicious! Moreover, either option is sugar free, paleo, keto, and whole30 compliant!
How to make:
The marinade is simple to make! Start by combining all the marinade ingredients in a Mason Jar and give it a good shake. After that add the chicken and marinade into a dish or plastic bag, cover/seal the container and place in the refrigerator. Then refrigerate the marinated chicken from 4 hours to a 2 days. The longer it marinades, the better the flavor!
I like to prep the chicken at night so that when I get home from work it is ready to go. Another option is to freeze the chicken and marinade in a freezer safe container. As you defrost the chicken it will also marinade it.
This BBQ and Mustard Chicken Marinade recipe works will with grilling, baking, or sautéing the chicken. In addition to chicken, the marinade can works well with Pork. Just follow the same instructions as if you were prepping chicken. Most importantly however you make it you will love it.Print
