I thought would be fun to all share our favorite marinade recipes (and pictures if you think of it). This is my favorite; I got this recipe from a friend (Rachel, not Katy). It seems like pretty much standard marinade ingredients but for some reason it just makes chicken or beef (kabobs or whatever) SO tasty!
The last time we used this recipe we then used the marinated, grilled chicken on huge salads with strawberries and pineapple, besides the normal lettuce, spinach, carrots, red pepper, WALNUTS, etc. Fruit on a salad isn't a new idea or anything (Panera's been doing it for ages!), but it does make a pretty picture and I remembered to take one so I'm sharing it here:
Katy's Meat Marinade (marinates meat for ~6 people, we usually cut it in half and that's easily enough for a package of chicken, probably too much)
1 c. canola oil
1/2 soy sauce
1/4 c. worcestershire sauce
1/2 c. mustard
1/2 c. lemon juice
1/2 t. garlic salt
1 t. pepper
Marinate meat 24-48 hours for best flavor. Just ~8 hours works too, but overnight is better.
