Grilling season is here and I couldn’t be more excited! Any meal that can be made on the grill is my favorite meal! We eat a lot of chicken and I find the key to not getting bored, is to have some super easy and delicious recipes in your back pocket. This Spicy Grilled Chicken Marinade will become your new summer favorite!

How Long Should I Let My Chicken Marinade?

Letting your chicken marinade for 1-2 hours is plenty of time to give it flavor, but if you need to start the marinade in the morning, it’s fine to let it marinade in the refrigerator all day before grilling that night.

Should You Discard Marinade?

If you aren’t using the marinade to further coat the chicken on the grill (more about that in my post below), then yes, you should dispose of the leftover marinade since it was in contact with raw chicken and can make you sick.

How To Marinade Chicken

Marinating chicken is a very simple process.

  • In a small bowl, whisk together crushed garlic cloves, ginger, coconut aminos and Sriracha Chili Hot Sauce.
  • Place chicken in a large ziplock baggie and pour marinade into baggie.
  • Seal baggie and massage marinade into chicken from the outside of the bag so that chicken is all coated.

  • Remove chicken from fridge and lay each piece on the grill over medium heat.
