Marinated Grilled Chicken Recipes

marinated grilled chicken

Most cuts of chicken are not exceptionally flavorful. So how do you take it from boring to delish? Marinate it! Why does marinating help chicken? The acidity in a marinade (like vinegar) helps to weaken the chicken’s skin. It permeates into the meat and adds flavor. Marinating also helps to tenderize the chicken. Adjust the marinade ingredients and you can change the whole flavor profile. These 11 marinated grilled chicken recipes are juicy, delicious, and will be fantastic for a summer meal.
