What not to marinate chicken in: the meat will be dry
Tender chicken meat is very easy to spoil. The dish will turn out unpalatable if you choose the wrong marinade for it. And very often it's all about just one simple ingredient.
FoodOboz editors will tell you what you can not marinate chicken in, so that the meat will turn out soft and juicy. Also, will share a few secrets on cooking.
It is not worth marinating chicken in mayonnaise. This product makes tender meat very tough. This is because such a product contains vinegar. It also gives the chicken a bitter flavor.
Also, do not add salt to the marinade itself. The spice takes all the juice from the meat, so it will be dry. It is best to salt the product 10 minutes before cooking.
Recommendations for cooking juicy chicken
If you marinate the chicken for longer than 2 hours - store it in the refrigerator.
Vegetable oil is best for marinating, because it combines well with spices.
If you marinate a whole chicken, it needs 10-12 hours. Thighs and shanks - 4 hours. For breasts and wings, an hour is enough.
