Marinated Chicken

Let's make something simple and tasty!
I always like making chicken. This recipe can be used for chicken breast, wings, thighs it is good for everything.

What you need~
2 tbsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp Salt
1 1/2 tsp paprika
1 tsp pepper
3 tbsp olive oil

 Combine all items in a freezer bag. I did two chicken breasts so one gallon size
was big enough. You may need more depending on how much marinade and chicken you are making. Add the chicken to the marinade at least an hour before cooking and no longer than 24 hours. If you go past 24 hours the lemon juice will start to break down the chicken and it gets slimy and gross.

Before you bake, grill or fry in a pan remove from bag and throw away leftover marinade. Do NOT baste the chicken with the leftovers you can get sick from that. I used BBQ sauce at the end of baking mine at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. I will start basting them with the BBQ sauce after about 15 minutes of baking. I do a thin layer of the sauce each time to build it up a bit.

This makes for a really delicious chicken that is not at all dried out.

Until next time~
