Chicken drummies...

I'm going to make up a batch of chicken drummies for dinner this Friday. I'm thinking of marinating in soy sauce and garlic powder for a change. Would you start marinating night before, morning of, or just a couple of hours prior?

We never let ours go over 8 hours.

Thanks Rainee, I thought overnight would be too long and was leaning toward something in the 4-6 hour time frame.

never tried ours overnight, so not sure what that may do to it.

Your mileage may vary.

I nearly ALWAYS marinate overnight - whatever I'm cooking! Time is a luxury and it really helps to permeate the meat witih the flavours in the marinade

Throw in a tablespoon of corn starch to the soy sauce and garlic powder ... marinate a couple of hours. I've seen this in several Asian recipes.

Drummies are so small that I'm a bit apprehensive about an overnight. I think I'll try the middle ground time frame first and see how that works.

There is nothing in that marinade that would 'cook' the drummies.......however, I would worry about how salty they would be if you went over 4-6 hours. But experiment, leave 1 or 2 in the marinade overnight and see how salty they would get, then let us know.

I know they wouldn't 'cook' but I was concerned about the saltiness. Unfortunately, they only had the smaller bags available when I bought so there won't be any extras for an overnight test run.
