Description

Here is a chicken marinade that is brain-dead easy and will work wonders on your yard bird. There is almost no way to make this any easier. What’s great about it is that it tenderizes and adds just enough flavor without overpowering. This also works very well with pork loin and tenderloin.

Ingredients

  • 8 cups Ginger Ale (just Shy Of 2 Liters)
  • 1 bottle (24 Oz) Zesty Italian Salad Dressing (a Cheap Store Brand Is Fine)

Preparation

This recipe is enough for two whole chickens and then some, so adjust as necessary.

Pour the ginger ale into a large mixing bowl.

Add the salad dressing and whisk to combine.

Put your chicken(s) in a gallon zip-top bag(s) and add enough marinade to each bag to completely cover the chicken.

Seal the bag(s), removing the excess air.

Put the bag(s) in a large lipped pan in the refrigerator and marinate 3-6 hours.

Remove the chicken from the marinade and drain.

Grill or smoke the chicken as you normally would.

Tip: Reserve some of the unused marinade and use it as a baste. Brush it on the meat periodically while cooking. You can use the marinade from the chicken, but you must boil it for five minutes to make it safe to use.
