This is one of those unique recipes that you have to try to believe it’s good. The ingredients are a very unique combination (in my opinion – I’ve never had anything like it before!) but the result is an incredibly savory, smokey grilled flavor. You can use this marinade on both chicken and turkey – I haven’t tried it on pork, but I think it would be delicious! I have also tried this on fresh corn on the cob…very good! This recipe is a really nice change of pace from the more traditional BBQ chicken or Italian Dressing marinated chicken. My family requests it often – and I think yours will too!
Kentucky Style Grilled Chicken
1 cup cider vinegar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
5 teaspoons Worcestershire Sauce
4 teaspoons hot sauce (I use Frank’s)
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon mustard (I used yellow, but feel free to experiment here!)
2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon sugar (or honey or your favorite sweetener)
Combine all ingredients in a bow and mix well. Add desired meat to 1 cup of mixture and let marinate for 4 hours. Grill over medium heat for 20 minutes – turn and grill for 20 – 30 more minutes until juices run clear and meat is cooked through. Baste occasionally with extra marinade.
The total cost for this recipe is $.55 – pretty good deal! I love that a few simple pantry ingredients combine to create an amazing meal! And the difference in cost between this recipe and a store-bought marinade is about $2.00. GREAT savings!
