    Cutlets and tenderloin – 2 minutes every one side

Recipe Notes:

1. Chicken – marinade will work for any cut of chook concept I generally use skinless boneless cuts.
Easiest to BAKE bone in cuts (breast, legs, thighs) – see Note 4.
2. Quick Marinade 30 min to at least one hr – cut breasts in half horizontally to kind 2 thin steaks. For entire thighs or breast, poke a pair of holes in every one breast utilizing a fork. For drumsticks, cut a pair of slashes with knife.
3. Marinade subs:

    Brown sugar – sub 2 tbsp white sugar, 1.5 tbsp honey, maple syrup
    Soy – any normal, all aim soy or faded soy smart here, or tamari, mushroom soy sauce. If you’ve candy soy or kecap manis, skip sugar. Dark soy sauce now not advised (label will say “dark soy).
    No soy? Dissolve 1 tsp salt in four tbsp water, then use in vicinity of soy sauce.
    Lemon – sub with so much less sharp vinegars like cider vinegar, white wine or red wine vinegar, rice vinegar. Or 1.5 tbsp different vinegars (normal white vinegar, balsamic)
    Worcestershire – dollop of ketchup or BBQ sauce may be a respectable sub there! Say 2 tbsp, then reduce sugar. HP Sauce, steak sauce or different savoury sauces also good.
    Garlic – 3 tsp from jar, or 3/4 tsp dried garlic powder smart here. Also 1/4 tsp onion powder may be smart too.
    Dried herbs – one thing is the pass here, pass with what you like. Fresh will now not truly work here, too gentle until doing a brief marinade. Exception – contemporary rosemary is terrific, 1 tsp finely chopped.

4. Baking directions – range is greatest to get smart browning, but to bake, prepare dinner as follows:

    Breast and boneless thighs – bake 18 minutes at 425F/220C oven, or inside temperature is 165F/75C, adopted via way of fast grill/broil on excessive to brown
    Drumsticks, wings and bone in thighs – 50 minutes at 180C/350F, basting with juices as quickly as or twice

5. Storage – Cooked chook might be smart for three to four days within the fridge, I all the time reheat in microwave as it retains it moist. If holding cooked chicken, boneless thigh is greatest (stays juiciest).
Freeze uncooked chook in marinade as quickly as you make it up (chicken will marinade whereas thawing!). Thaw then prepare dinner per recipe.
