This works for Me everytime!!!! .....

I think it tastes better too!...I sometimes like to use the "Dry Powered" Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing Mix (I get it at Sams)
Brush the Chicken (after brining) with evoo
Sprinkle liberally the Ranch powder
Garlic powder
Fresh ground pepper
Let marinate in fridge for at least an hour....then Grill...

#1 Rule for Dieting.....If it "Tastes Good"...Spit-it-OUT!!

I am with GB in thinking that brining before grilling makes for the best chicken.

I often use this marinade, though:

Soy sauce, dijon mustard, olive oil, lemon juice and a bunch of fresh herb(s) of choice. Amounts of ingredients to taste.

I made it over the weekend with cilantro and lime instead of lemon (plus some hab vinegar).

Things to do to chicken

I love reading through these forums. I really should wait until later in the day because you guys make me hungry.

Chicken marinated in Italian dressing is great but one of about a billion ways to prepare chicken before grilling.

Recently we have been making skewered boneless chicken that is marinated in

1 cup yogurt
zest and juice of lemon
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
Salt to taste

Grill as you would any skewered chicken. Great as an appetizer or as a meal with a selections of dips.

Also marinating in just lemon juice and rubbing with salt and pepper before grilling is easy and tasty.

Take care,
Knox Spice Co.

Thanks for the warm welcome. I have only been a member of your forum for a couple of days but feel I am among friends.

The yogurt Chicken recipe is one of my wife's favorites and everybody I have tested it out on also liked it. Sometimes above traditional Thai curry sates which are some of my favorites. Last week we had family over and I made extra yogurt marinade and added maybe 1/4 cup of buttermilk and a tablespoon of curry paste and served it as a dip. I almost lost a finger trying to refill the bowl.

Happy to be here and thanks,

Knox's Spice Co.

Amber's chicken tikka recipe was really good. Even though I cooked it under the broiler I think it would go well on the grill also.
