Change up your flavors with some new and exciting chicken marinades!

Chicken, probably the most versatile meat, can also become the most used and even the most dreaded. If you find yourself cooking chicken breast after chicken breast on the weeknights, change up your flavors with some new and exciting marinades! 


Below are four quick and easy marinades that you can place in the fridge between 2 and 24 hours before dinner or even in the freezer a week before in order to let the chicken absorb as much flavor and tenderness as possible. Each marinade will serve two people and recommends 1-2 boneless skinless chicken breasts. 

Cilantro Lime Marinade

1 Tbsp. olive oil

1 Tbsp. lime juice

¼ cup cilantro, chopped

1 clove garlic, minced

2 tsp. honey

⅛ tsp. salt

Jerk Chicken Marinade

1 Tbsp. olive oil

1 Tbsp. lime juice

1 Tbsp. 100% pure maple syrup

½ tsp. thyme

½ tsp. allspice

¼ tsp. cinnamon

¼ tsp. cayenne

¼ tsp. salt

¼ tsp. pepper

Honey Garlic Marinade

Ingredients

1 Tbsp. olive oil

1 Tbsp. reduced sodium soy sauce

1 Tbsp. honey

1 clove garlic, minced

2 Tbsp. water


Asian Garlic Chili Chicken Marinade

Ingredients

3 Tbsp. garlic chili sauce

1 ½ Tbsp. coconut aminos

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 Tbsp. avocado oil

2 Tbsp. water



Instructions for all Marinades

  1. Combine all the ingredients in a small bowl.
  2. Move to a heavy duty freezer bag and add in the chicken.
  3. If you plan to cook within a day, let the chicken marinate in the refrigerator anywhere from 2-24 hours.
  4. If you are planning to cook this later in the week, store it in the freezer until the night before when you can transfer it to the fridge. Place in a bowl of cool water in the sink to thaw 2 hours before you start cooking.
