We used three different marinades in class. Once marinated, the chicken should be cooked within 24 hours. We reserved a little of the marinade separately to use as a glaze after cooking.
We used a foil covered baking sheet lightly sprayed with cooking spray.
All Purpose Buffalo Chicken Marinade (For 1 pound of chicken)
1. Whisk together all of the Buffalo Marinade ingredients in a medium bowl. Measure out 1/4 cup and add to a shallow dish or freezer bag, along with 2 tablespoons olive oil. Add chicken and toss evenly to coat. Marinate in the refrigerator 2 hours up to overnight.
2. To the remaining marinade, make your Buffalo Glaze by whisking in 1 tablespoon honey and 1 1/2 teaspoons lime juice. Store in the refrigerator until ready to use.
We cooked our chicken at 400 for about 20 minutes. Larger pieces will take longer to cook. We tossed our chicken with the heated glaze after our chicken was cooked. We used double the recipe for the class.
Teriyaki Marinade (This is for 2 lbs. of chicken)
½ cup soy sauce
½ cup pineapple juice
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon minced garlic, fresh
1. In shallow glass or plastic dish or heavy-duty resealable food-storage plastic bag, mix all Teriyaki Marinade ingredients.
2. Add chicken; turn to coat with marinade. Cover dish or seal bag and refrigerate, turning chicken occasionally, at least 1 hour but no longer than 24 hours.
We used 2 lbs. pounded chicken cut into bite size pieces.
* Reserve ¼ to ½ cup marinade in labeled container before adding chicken to bag.
Bake at 400 for 20 minutes until cooked. Larger pieces may take longer to cook.
To make the glaze, add a teaspoon of corn starch to the reserved mariade, mix and heat until thickened. Toss with cooked chicken.
INGREDIENT LIST FOR BBQ CHICKEN MARINADE
We sliced zucchini and yellow squash, and large diced red bell pepper and onions.
We tossed the vegetables with olive oil and a little garlic powder, salt, pepper, and seasoning blend (like Mrs. Dash) and roasted them at 425 for 25 minutes until cooked to desired doneness. Broiling for the last few minutes will carmelize them a bit. Watch them carefully if you do this.
