Tender Juicy Chicken BBQ

Who wants their chicken barbecue tender and juicy? Me! If you have been following this blog, you may have seen posts about food recipes. It has been quite a while since I posted one so I would like to share my latest chicken marinade.

I usually marinate the meat hours before I cook food or before my hubby cooks. When it comes to grilling, he is the one in charge these days and not me. My main role is to prepare the marinade. I have done a few experiments to come up with a mixture that would make the meat not only tasty but also tender and juicy.

When I was young, I used to observe my late father when he cooked. He was one of the best when it came to meat, however, I never really took cooking my own food seriously. When I got married, I started cooking more. I tried to remember how he did it, but there was one thing I did not know until I asked my mother.

Aside from not over-grilling the meat, it is important to marinate meat with the right amount of salt, ground black pepper, and garlic powder (if there is no minced garlic). What else? What about vinegar? It is up to you, but I use Sprite (the original flavor). What about soy sauce? Yes, you can add but not a lot. You can also add fish sauce instead if it is okay with everyone. The amount for each ingredient depends on the size of the meat or the number of slices you are going to grill. The next question is, "What should you eat with chicken barbecue?" 

Have you heard of rice? Nah, I am just kidding. Of course, you do! The question is, "Can you cook rice without a rice cooker? I am grateful that my parents trained me when I was a little to cook without it, but for convenience's sake, it is nice having one. Believe it or not, it took me a long time to decide which one to buy because I was looking for a trusted brand with stainless steel. After reading all sorts of reviews online (it needs patience!), I finally found the one

What about beans? Yes! If you have been also following my food posts on Instagram, you may have noticed that we are a household of bean lovers. We eat different types of beans. Beans are a good source of protein, fiber, iron, folate, and antioxidants. They are a healthy addition to your diet but in moderation along with fruits. I eat cakes from time to time, but fruits like avocados are healthier.
