Brown Sugar Mustard Grilled Chicken starts with a simple marinade and is so flavorful. One of my most requested dishes and the best chicken marinade.
Do you love a great piece of grilled chicken? This is probably one of the Best chicken marinades ever!
One of my favorite things to whip up is this best chicken marinade. It’s packed full of flavors, with just the right touch of brown sugar that caramelizes as it cooks. Serve this yummy chicken on a toasted brioche bun or over a garden salad. You can even shred this chicken and add it to flatbread with sauteed onions, peppers, and mushrooms. Oh, that is so good! Other dishes to try: Lemon Pepper Chicken, Southwestern Chicken Tomato and Avocado Salad, Grilled Chicken Avocado Sandwiches.
Can you put frozen chicken in marinade?
Yes, certainly! Since frozen chicken needs to thaw before cooking and the marinade needs time to soak into the chicken, it’s perfect.
Can you marinade chicken in the fridge?
You want to be sure and always marinade chicken in the fridge! Never marinade in room temperature or outdoors when barbecuing, as bacteria can quickly multiply on raw chicken.
How long can chicken marinade in the refrigerator before it goes bad?
You can store marinated chicken in the fridge for up to two days, according the USDA Food Safety. But, I usually recommend cooking the chicken within 24 hours.
I love to put this chicken on top of my Blueberry Strawberry Salad with Candied Pecans!
Many times, I prep this chicken on Sunday and put in a large Ziploc bag, so we can quickly enjoy lunches during the week!!
