7 up Chicken Marinade

By Janet Mayhew luvz2bake

I stumbled upon this recipe while "stalking" on facebook. lol Can't even remember who to give credit to but it is awesome, thank you whoever you are! I buy the big family packs of chicken when they are on sale. I make stove top chicken (will post later) and the left overs I marinate over night in the 7 up marinade and then I freeze it. I took some camping after it was frozen a few weeks. It thawed in the camper freezer and when I cooked it my brother inlaw cleaned it up. He is a huge fan.I make this often now.

Directions Step-By-Step

I mix all ingredients in a gallon freezer bag. I take boneless skinless chicken breast and filet them in half so they cook more even. I put the chicken in the bag as much as I have left from a family pack.
I wiggle the chicken in the bag to get it all covered and I put it in the fridge over night. The next day I cook it for dinner or I freeze it. I am surprised how nice it tastes and keeps even after freezing it.
I would be surprised if you don't add this to your weekly menu during the grilling season. I am sure it would cook nicely in a George Foreman grill too. Yummy!

    oh never thought of that! When I stumbled upon this recipe I just had to share it is my new favorite. I was getting tired of the same Russian dressing I usually marinade my steak and chicken in. Do you do boneless skinless breasts? I put a whole roasting chicken in my big tupperware bowl and marinated it a few hours before grilling it as a beer can chicken. Oh my word it was soooo good!

    I didn't like mine in the crockpot. It cooked too quickly and fell apart like pulled pork. I must have done something wrong because I like it so much more on the grill.
