Sweet and Spicy Marinade for Chicken

I didn't get any pictures of this one, but if you need to know, it looks like a piece of grilled chicken - perfect grill lines and great color.

I actually made this marinade, not Jon, and it was based on another marinade I created for beef a few years ago. It's bold, sweet, and spicy all at the same time.

I marinated the chicken for about 8 hours, but if you can do it overnight it will be even better.

The Marinade (for 3 chicken breasts; amounts are approximate)

  • 1/4 c olive oil
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1/4 tsp cooking sherry
  • 1/4 tsp rice vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 tbsp fresh ginger
  • 2 tsp hoisin
  • 1 tbsp pineapple juice
  • handful fresh cilantro
  • 1 tbsp siracha
Note - I made the marinade without the siracha and used that for my daughter's piece of chicken. Then I added in the siracha and used that for our marinade.
