We thought we would mix things up a bit and make a dish that is usually prepared for summer barbeques in the WINTER! And yes, we broke out the BBQ Grill in the winter, with snow on the ground! My Little Chefs thought it was so much fun.
We came across this delicious Chicken recipe when a good neighbor of mine brought us dinner one night. Our Chef Dad was out-of-town for work, and she knew that when he is out-of-town, us Chefs take a break from the kitchen and pretty much eat cereal for dinner. She was thoughtful and assumed we would enjoy a home cooked meal, rather than cereal….and she assumed right!!! It was amazing, and my Little Chefs loved it. So, it became a favorite recipe of ours. We had not made it for a while because it is best when grilled, and since this winter has been a COLD, cold winter, the grill has been hibernating for the season…….Until tonight!
To make this very simple marinade, in a shallow pan add the italian dressing mix, apple cider vinegar, olive oil, soy sauce, honey. and mix till combined.
You then butterfly your chicken and pound it out to your desired thickness. (Tip – cover the chicken with plastic wrap before pounding it out to avoid a chicken splattered mess) Add it to the marinade and let it sit for at least 8 hours.
Break out the grill….winter or summer, (because its worth it), and Chef B thought is was the greatest to stomp around in the snow while waiting to flip the chicken!
And Enjoy! So a big thank you for an amazing neighbor for sharing this AWESOME Chicken Marinade recipe with Five Little Chefs.
