If you’re a lazy cook like me, you are going to love this idea!
I grill a lot of chicken. Usually, I just throw the boneless breasts or tenders on the grill frozen. Sometimes, I go all out and sprinkle them with salt and pepper or homemade seasoned salt. That works fine. But I really prefer the taste of marinated chicken.
However, I’m too lazy and usually in too much of a hurry to remember to thaw the chicken and get it in the marinade with time for it to sit before cooking.
But I’ve got a true short cut for you! It turns out, you can put the marinade over frozen chicken. Pop it back in the freezer and then when you’re ready pop it on the grill. Super simple and it tastes great and makes the chicken tender too.
This idea came to me when GLAD sent me some of their new Freezerware containers.
I used the large size. They are big enough for 1/2 a bag of chicken tenders to fit with room to spare for shaking to coat the meat with marinade. [Read more…] about 4 Freezer Marinades for Lazy People
