This delicious marinade for chicken breasts is the perfect way to add some flavor and moisture to your dinner. It features a combination of several pantry staples, including olive oil, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar, Dijon mustard, and spices. You’ll also need boneless and skinless chicken breasts, of course.
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1 teaspoon chili powder
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Start by whisking together the olive oil, minced garlic, Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar, Dijon mustard, paprika, chili powder, onion powder, garlic powder, and black pepper in a medium bowl until all of the ingredients are well combined. Place the chicken breasts in a shallow dish and pour the marinade over them, making sure all sides of the breasts are coated. Cover the dish with plastic wrap and marinate the chicken in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour and up to 8 hours.
Once the chicken has finished marinating, preheat your grill to medium-high heat. Grease the grates and cook the chicken for 5-6 minutes per side, or until the internal temperature of the chicken reaches 165°F. Remove the chicken from the grill and let it rest for 5 minutes before serving.
