Jake’s Grilled Chicken Marinade {All Things Delicious}

May 24th, 2013


Wendi and Jake Meet Wendi and Jake. These two amazing people are good friends of ours, and they just found out they are having TWINS!!!! Can you imagine!?!? I am soooo excited for them. They even found out that one is a girl and one is a boy!!! I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am for them. These two amazing friends of ours are THE. NICEST. PEOPLE. on the planet. I have known them for a little over four years now and they were our neighbors when we moved into St. George. I snapped this picture of them and their cute family a few years back.
All Things Delicious copy Well, the other day, Wendi was in charge our BUNKO night. {She always does an amazing job}. Her cute hubby made THE. MOST. DELICOUS. chicken I have tasted in a really long time. And since you all know that I am watching what I eat, I basically FORCED him to give me the recipe. Ha ha, no he actually gave it freely. I made the recipe that weekend for my own family and they LOVED IT. And when I find something that my kids will scarf down, I declare a success. Not only that, but I made this recipe again for my biggest loser peeps last week, and almost everyone requested the recipe. When that happens, you know you have a winner!
I don’t share recipes here at All Things Thrifty very often, but when I do, you better bet they are tried and trusted. Maybe it’s because I don’t cook as often as I should, or maybe it’s because I’m super picky about which recipes I share. You be the judge. :)

If you plan to make this delicious recipe, you will need:
1/2 c. Olive Oil, 1/3 c. Soy Sauce, a few swirls of Honey (I used raw honey), 1 1/2 t. Cumin, 1 t. Oregano, 1/2 Lemon {freshly squeezed}, 1/2 t. Kosher Salt, Pepper {to taste}, and 2 cloves Garlic {pressed}.
Combine all of your ingredients into a large bowl and stir well. Then, place thawed/raw boneless skinless chicken TENDERS into the marinade for 2-3 hours. {I love the fact that you don’t have to marinate them for too long because I am terrible at planning that far ahead}. When making the chicken you can try other types of chicken, but I have only made this recipe with chicken tenders. AND when I try a recipe and it knocks my socks off, I don’t deviate from what the boss says. {The boss being who gave me the recipe to begin with}. I figure that if I want my recipe to taste as well as theirs, I better do what they say…..to a T}.

After you start the cooking process, turn the BBQ down to medium and cook them SLOWLY. Since they are chicken tenders, they will still cook quite fast. Grilled Chicken Marinade Recipe Turn them in a few minutes. I know I should have timed this process, but I’m lame like that sometimes. I just turned them when I thought they looked like they needed it. Grilled Chicken Marinade Recipe I’m telling ya, peeps, this chicken is soooo delish.

For this many tenders, I doubled the marinade recipe, but I could have put a few more in with them if I had thawed a few more pieces. I bought my tenders at Costco. :)
