Today, I have a delicious marinade recipe to take you into your weekend. If you enjoy your weekends by getting outside and enjoying the great outdoors and doing a grilling like my little family does, then this is a recipe for you! This Dr. Pepper Marinade is delicious and can be used to marinate chicken, pork, beef or turkey. I have only tried chicken, but I think any type of meat would be fabulous!
I whipped up this marinade this week and used chicken breasts. After marinating and grilling the Chicken Breasts, I sliced and then placed them on a delicious salad. My kids and my Handsome Hubby really liked this chicken. I also enjoyed it and thought that the meat turned out super tender and very flavorful!
If you are looking for a new marinade to use this Spring and Summer for quick and easy suppers, then try this recipe! I am sure it won't disappoint!
Hope you all have a great weekend!
I know my weekend will be spent watching soccer practices, soccer games, attending a family birthday party, and maybe a little grilling on the Barbie!! Wink!
Dr. Pepper Marinade
1 (12-ounce) can Dr. Pepper
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup lime or lemon juice
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 medium onion, minced
1 teaspoon hot sauce or cracked peppercorns
Whisk all the ingredients together. Combine this with chicken, turkey, pork or beef in a gallon-size bag (add more Dr. Pepper to cover if necessary) and refrigerate at least 3 hours or overnight. Once you have the meat on the grill, boil the marinade for 5 minutes to thicken and use for basting.
Makes about 2-1/2 cups, enough for 2 pounds of meat.
