Easy Chicken and Meat Marinade

    2 days 1 hour 10 minutes

    i created this versatile marinade around ten years ago as a simple base for marinating meat. Ideal for any chicken cuts, it also works very well with lamb chops and BBQ beef sausages and is a great hit at parties and BBQs. Although you can cook the meat after 30 minutes of marinating, it is best to marinate and refrigerate the meat overnight or for up to two days prior to cooking. This marinade mixture is enough for around 1kg of meat.

    Serves: 4 

    • 5 Tablespoons light soy sauce
    • 3 Tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce
    • 1 teaspoon white pepper
    • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
    • ½ to 1 teaspoon lemon pepper seasoning
    • 1/2 lemon (juiced)
    • 1 or 2 teaspoons chives

    Preparation:30min  ›  Cook:40min  ›  Extra time:2days marinating  ›  Ready in:2days1hour10min 

    1. Add and mix all ingredients - except the chives - thoroughly with the lemon juice in a medium mixing bowl.
    2. Place meat evenly in a glass baking dish. Don't pack dish too tightly. Pour marinade mixture over meat.
    3. Sprinkle meat pieces with chives, cover dish with Glad Wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes minimum if cooking immediately. Leave overnight to make the meat more tender - particularly when using lamb chops.
    4. There are a few different ways to cook up the meat when ready - Barbecuing slowly is a great way to cook this mixture and grilling also works well. However I like to bake in a moderate oven 180 degrees for 40 minutes. There is no need to turn meat if baking in oven. Occasionally brush meat with marinade from dish.


    Great to eat cold next day, Ideal for picnics or kids lunches (keep chilled in warm weather)


    For an extra spicy mixture add 1 Tablespoon of chilli sauce to marinade mixture when preparing and mix in.


    You can also add mild mustard, honey or BBQ sauce to taste as required.

    Had a bag of chicken wings to prepare for my daughters 3rd birthday. Kids are always a tough crowd plus I didn't want a sweet sugary marinade that would mess up the BBQ so went with this one but only added a little cracked pepper as I didn't want the kids to complain. Marinated overnight. Everyone young and old loved them. I got to try one and the flavour was all through the meat, divine. I went back for more but 4kg disappeared within minutes. I usually like a sweet marinade with chicken but this was a perfect compliment to the wings.  -  17 Mar 2013
