Meaty hacks to make your chicken flavourful

Add zing to your mid-week protein-rich chicken meal with these flavourful marinades

16 Sep 2022

Making an easy chicken marinade is quite simple! Whisk together a few simple ingredients and let the chicken soak them up for a few hours. Marinating chicken also allows the meat to tenderise and absorb the flavours of the ingredients.

With the launch of ready-to-cook marinated chicken ranges, like the Real Good Hot and Grill marinated chicken, it substantially reduces your cooking time and ensures complete safety and hygiene at the same time.

A basic four-ingredient chicken marinade usually includes some variety or combination of oil, soy sauce, or Dijon mustard, vinegar, and a sweetener but you can add additional herbs and spices to give more depth to the flavour. So, let your creativity shine when you marinate your meat. Let the meat be your blank canvas and the marinade your palette!
Here are some basic marinades to get you started!

Barbeque marinade

Planning a barbecue? Try  whipping up a barbeque marinade with a combination of dried onion flakes, smoked paprika, salt and pepper, ketchup, soy sauce, and Worcestershire sauce. Blend these ingredients together and apply on  Real Good Chicken breasts. For a better flavour, put the marinated chicken into the freezer for one night or at least a few hours before grilling. The longer you marinate, the more delicious it will be.
