Marinating Magic

Think of marinades like magical mixtures that make meat taste awesome. They use things like herbs, spices, oils, and acids to make the meat soft, juicy, and full of flavor. One special ingredient, garlic, makes your marinade even better. Garlic smells strong and tastes powerful. When you use garlic in your barbecue chicken marinade, it adds exciting flavors that make your chicken super delicious.

Select Your Base

Begin with a foundation of olive oil, as it helps distribute flavors evenly and prevents the chicken from sticking to the grill.

Embrace Garlic

Incorporate minced or crushed garlic into the marinade. The quantity depends on your preference for intensity.

Experiment and Taste

Mix your marinade ingredients, adjusting proportions as needed. Taste the marinade to ensure a harmonious blend that captures the essence of garlic without overpowering other flavors.

Give It Time

Allow the chicken to marinate for at least a couple of hours to absorb the flavors. This step ensures the garlic-infused marinade works its magic.
