I started making this marinade in the summer because it was part of the Bride of Magazine Challenge. I continued to make it because it's delicious.
I haven't spent as much time in front of the grill as I might have liked to this summer, but the things that we have had have been good. I didn't even manage to get out our skewers or the vegetable grilling basket. With things like burgers on the menu, neither of those get much use.
What I like about grilling is that the cleanup is quick. Being able to put meat in marinade and leave it for a bit while I prep everything else is also nice. This recipe is actually a part of a larger recipe which I haven't made - the potatoes and vegetables sound good, but I just haven't done it. The marinade though? Delicious.
I present to you now from the July/August 2006 issue of Everyday Food, Garlic Marinated Chicken:
