Is it legal to put a store bought marinade mix on a home cooking blog?!? Legal or not, I'm doing it. We got this tip from a friend of ours and it is DELISH! Jared made it for us on Sunday and I loved it...and that's saying a lot. A chunk of meat is never very appealing to me. I agreed to it simply because it meant I didn't have to cook. :) I had the leftovers on top of a salad for lunch the next day and that was amazing too! The best part is that it is simple.
Key Ingredient: McCormick Grill Mates "Garlic, Herb & Wine" dry marinade packet
Simply follow the instructions on the back of the packet. I know. It's a cheater recipe, but I just had to share.
For the shopping list the other ingredients are:
1/4 c. oil
1/4 c. water
1 T white or balsamic vinager
2 lbs chicken (or fish or pork)
Jared cut the chicken breasts in half so that they weren't as thick and then marinated the meat for about 45 minutes. Then he cooked it on the grill 5 minutes on one side, 5 minutes on the other side and then a final 3 minutes on the first side. It was juicy and delicious! We ate it with sweet potato fries and green salad. Mm-mmm.
