How to Make and Keep Marinades
Start by whisking together the ingredients from one of the marinades above. Then combine with the chicken in a freezer bag until evenly coated. Then, press out any excess air and seal. You will need ½ cup of marinade per one pound of chicken.
If using immediately, refrigerate for 30 minutes to a day. If you want to freeze, place the chicken packs in the freezer for up to three months. When you are ready to use, place packs in the fridge for 24 hours or in a cold bowl of water in the fridge to speed up the process.
Cook the chicken how you prefer!
