Island Chicken Marinade
This mouth-watering chicken marinade recipe comes straight from a waterfront restaurant and has a truly unbeatable flavor combination. You'll feel like you're eating on a tropical island!
In a large saucepan, heat the canola and olive oil over medium heat. Add the onions and garlic and let cook, covered, for 4-6 minutes- until the onions are soft & translucent. Stir them occasionally as they cook.
Stir in the brown sugar, allspice, thyme, pepper, cloves, cinnamon and cayenne and remove from heat. Stir in the soy sauce and red wine vinegar.
Let the mixture cool completely before using it.
Chicken should marinade for at least 2 hours or overnight.
Set aside about 1/4 cup of the marinade to brush on top of the meat as it cooks, if desired.
- This recipe makes enough to generously marinade 5-6 chicken breasts. I like to cut my chicken breasts in half so that each is thinner, giving you 12 chicken cutlets.
- I like to marinade my chicken for at least 2 hours, and up to 24. If your pressed for time, you can marinade for 30 minutes and still get really flavorful chicken!
- You can also use this marinade for chicken thighs, chicken wings, salmon, and other seafood!
- Do not reuse the marinade after using once.
