What do you marinade your chicken in?

Hey all,
Just wondering what you use to spruce up your chicken. I only really like boneless, skinless chicken breast, I can't stand chicken with bones for some reason. They are getting dull and I'm getting sick of eating them just grilled, so I'm looking for suggestions on what to marinade them in to make them a bit better.

I like using a teriyaki marinade a friend gave me.

1/2 c light soy sauce
6 T Diabetisweet, Brown Sugar Substitute
1 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp marjoram
2 tsp cracked black pepper
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 T oil
2 Tsp sesame seed oil
Mix together and add chicken or steak. Let marinate all day and then grill.

I usually cut my chicken breasts into thick strips so that the marinade can get into the chicken better.
Enjoy!

I like to even out the breasts sizes by pounding with a mallet and marinating in Good Seasons Italian Salad Dressing. I often get a large package of chicken breasts and divide into meal sizes into zip-locks and pour on the italian dressing and put in freezer. The longer the better. We then grill. Anne

Sometimes I use Italian dressing also. There are a few good asian sauces and marinades that are not sweet (very few) but have hot pepper and garlic, and I add soy sauce to them. I also like a barbeque sauce that we pick up when in NC, it has vinegar, mustard, hot sauce and ketchup. I plan to make my own using low carb ketchup. Oh, I also add extra oil to any marinade.
I want to try that teriyaki recipe, that sounds great.

I also use Italian dressing, (Ken's being my preference), but with added fresh lemon juice, zest, and fresh basil & parsley if I have it. I use about 8 oz. dressing and the zest & juice of one lemon for every 4-6 chicken breasts, depending on their size. I also pound them to an even thickness as someone else mentioned. That way, they cook more evenly on the grill.

Get you some of this orginal marindade from Wicker's...

Wicker's Vinegar Based Marinate/BBQ Sauce

or, make something similar yourself...

• 1 teaspoon black pepper
• 2 1/2 teaspoons salt
• 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar (substitute)
• 4 teaspoons chili powder
• 1 teaspoon dry mustard
• 1 teaspoon paprika
• 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

Preparation:

Combine all ingredients and cook for 5-10 minutes to dissolve spices. Use as a marinade and basting with your favorite BBQ recipe.

DH and I went to a mediterranean restaurant recently and I ordered some chicken kebabs there that were yummy. Came home and made a similar recipe about a week later. I marinated the chicken in greek yogurt, some fresh lemon juice and herbs (parsley, oregano, a little tumeric) and then grilled on our indoor cast iron grill pan (was messy and outdoors would have been better, but it was stormy.)

Very yummy.

Served it with cauli rice.

Does anyone know how much of the sugar in marinades is absorbed? My favorite marinade lists the number of carbs, but since I don't actually drink the marinade, I assume that I will be consuming much less carbs than what is listed on the bottle.

Lime zest, lime juice, white vinegar, and olive oil. Put in a blender or processor and add a bunch of cilantro, 1 whole jalapeno, 4 or 5 cloves of garlic, salt and pepper. Whiz it up and use it on every thing from chicken to steaks.

This makes the worlds best grilled wings to

Susie, that sounds yummy! Hubby and I love grilled wings, so I'll have to give it a try.

I've also tried marinade that Wifey linked. It's very good and one that I have used often.
