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.
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
