Cool chicken flavorings
« on: May 23, 2007, 10:06:48 AM »
I've finally learned how to make grilled chicken (I'm a newbie in the kitchen) and I've been experimenting with different flavors since I first learned. All the crazy combinations I've come up with turned out pretty good, including the lemon pepper/lime juice flavoring. This is what I've tried so far:

- garlic salt
- barbecue sauce
- vinegar
- lemon pepper
- soy sauce

Anyone have any suggestions for some simple flavoring? I don't know if this makes a difference, but I use chicken tenderloins for this.

One of my favorites when I was in college was italian dressing!  So simple, yet so yummy!

DH and I just made this earlier this week, it's a recipe from his aunt:

Ingredients

1 c chili sauce
3/4 c red-wine vinegar
1 T prepared horseradish
2 small cloves garlic, halved (we chopped ours up completely)
1 t salt
4 bone-in chicken breasts (about 6 oz each) (we use boneless chicken breasts)

Directions

1. Mix chili sauce, vinegar, horseradish, garlic and salt in a bowl. Reserve of marinade. Add chicken to bowl; turn to coat. Cover; marinate in refrigerator for about 5 minutes. (We let it marinate overnight.)

2. Preheat grill or broiler. Remove chicken from marinade; discard marinade in bowl. Place chicken on grill or on broiler pan.

3. Grill or broil chicken, turning and basting frequently with half the reserved marinade, until juices run dear when meat is pierced with a knife, about 30 minutes.

4. Heat remaining reserved marinade in a small saucepan, stirring occasionally. Serve hot along side chicken.

Hoisin sauce, cut with a splash of rice vinegar.  It's a chinese-style barbecue sauce :)  Goes nicely with a bit of garlic and onion powder, too.

i always make my own marinades, for ex:

- olive oil, lemon juice + grated rind, garlic, fresh chopped herbs (basil, oregano, etc

- soy sauce, honey, lemon/vinegar, garlic, hot pepper

- citrus: oil, freshly squeezed juice and rind from lemons, lime, oranges

BTW - there is a really cool trick I learnt called dump chicken. you buy fresh chicken parts, prepare the marinade and put the chicken with marinade in a freezer weight bag. for example - one batch of chicken breast with italian marinade in one bag, one batch of chicken wings in chinese style sauce in another bag, and so on. then you freeze them. the night before you want to cook it, you put the bag in the freezer and let it defrost in the marinade then cook as you would cook it . great trick for working families!
