Thanks to Martha's recent newsletter giving me many many ideas for cooking chicken wings, my delicious is full of chicken marinade recipes. I love having marinated chicken in salads for lunch, so I picked a few recipes that I could try out.

Funnily enough, none of the recipes I've chosen are Martha recipes, despite her newsletter being my inspiration. I've frozen the chicken pieces in their marinade ready to be defrosted and cooked during the week.

When I have defrosted them, I'll be sure to let you know how they turned out.

I've chosen Savoury Chicken, Southwest Chicken and Tandoori Style Chicken.


  1. Yum! I love having some pre-cooked marinated chicken ready for salads during the week.

    Marinating them in advance and freezing them is a great time saver during the week. Great idea Martha :)

  2. So far I've only cooked the Southwest Chicken, but I was disappointed because the flavours just didn't carry over. Maybe it's because it was more of a rub than a marinade? Maybe rubs don't freeze that well. Fingers crossed that the other two - which actually are marinades - are better!
