Perfectly Marinated Chicken. This delicious marinade is the combination of Olive Oil, Coconut Amino, Worcestershire Sauce, Garlic, Basil, Dijon and seasoned to perfection. Want to make it Whole30, Paleo or Keto Compliant? Use Primal Kitchen Steak Sauce! You can marinade the chicken for 30 minutes or two days. The longer it marinades, the more amazing it will taste! Not only goes great with Chicken but with Pork and Steak as well!
Another great idea someone gave me a few years ago was to freeze your chicken with the marinade. That way as it defrost, it marinades. This is great when you are short on time and just want to pull something out of the freezer. You can make up multiple freezer packs of marinated chicken to ensure you always have wonderfully perfect marinated chicken.
How to make Perfectly Marinated Chicken:
Add all the ingredients minus the chicken into a bowl, jar or measuring cup and stir/shake till combined. Cover the chicken, seal and refrigerate to marinade for 30 minutes to 2 days. The longer you allow it to marinade, the better the flavor of the chicken. Once marinated you can cook in on the stovetop, in the oven or on the grill. Remember when cooking that the Coconut Amino can burn easily. While there isn't much of an impact on the Grill or in the Oven, it can cause the juices in your pan to burn quickly. You don't want to cook your chicken on burnt juices!
When cooking on the stovetop I usually sear each side for about two minutes. Cover, reduce the heat to low and allow to cook. Make sure that the bottom remains wet to prevent the coconut amino from burning. I usually keep a glass of water handy and when it is dry just pouring on a little water.
You can also bake it in the oven for about 30 minutes until the chickens internal temperature is 165°F. I prefer to cook it on the grill when I can, grilling allows the outside to get perfectly crispy while the chicken remains juicy! Every grill is different but I cook mine for about 25 minutes at 350°F (medium-low).
I love making a meat that can be used for multiple meals and this is not exception! IT is great alone, on a salad, in chicken salad, or on a sandwich!
