The best marinades for chicken

1. Teriyaki

Teriyaki  is a Japanese cooking technique. ‘ Yaki’ really just means that the dish is fried. This can be done with meat, fish or vegetables. ‘Teri’ means shine and you get that by a marinade of, among other things, soy sauce, mirin and sake . The marinade is both sweet and salty and gives your chicken a crispy crust: very tasty.

5. pesto

You may associate pesto more with pasta pesto than with chicken, but be sure that pesto has all the qualities to be a good marinade. Coat the chicken generously with pesto, let it set and bake the chicken in the pan, in the oven or on the barbecue. Delicious with risotto or with this ratatouille .

6. Chimichurria

Chimichurri is a green sauce based on fresh herbs (for example flat-leaf parsley, oregano and chives), olive oil and other seasonings. The texture is somewhat reminiscent of pesto, but the taste is rather fresh and sometimes spicy. This green sauce is served with just about every South American dish, but you can also serve it in many ways in your own country… As a marinade for chicken, for example.
