This is a simple marinade for grilled chicken; it basically brines the chicken while it marinates. The meat is consistently tender and juicy.
2 c. cider vinegar
3/4 c. oil
1/3 c. salt
1 T. poultry seasoning
1/2 t. pepper
Cook ingredients in a saucepan, stirring well. Bring to a boil over medium heat; cool and pour into a 9×13 baking dish over chicken pieces.
Cover and refrigerate at least four hours, but no more than eight.
If you want to baste chicken with the marinade during grilling, be sure to bring the marinade back to a full rolling boil to kill any bacteria before basting the meat.
