Reviews for Grilled Barbecued Chicken
Sort By :
"Really good! This is probably the only marinade I have ever made with melted butter. It was surprisingly a good addition. It seemed to help crisp up the skin, providing a nice texture."
"So good! Everyone loved it. Was just as good on steak. This will be my go-to marinade."
"Wow. We made this for a party and got rave reviews. Delicious!"
"Amazing recipe! I made this for a large family gathering, and everybody loved it. To save time, I coarsely chopped the onion and threw all of the marinade ingredients into the blender to make everything smooth."
"I don't usually take the time to write a review after a recipe, but I had to come back to this one! I did the marinade all day and this was so moist and delicious. I did not take the time to cut up garlic and used powder instead...just as good. I think you could also use onion powder instead if you don't want the chunks in the marinade. Either way, this is delicious and we will most definitely make this again. I do suggest pounding the chicken first to make for extra moist meat.I wonder if there is an equal substitute for the butter to make it less fattening?"
