Are you looking for an easy chicken marinade to make for dinner? Here is a simple marinade for chicken you make right in a ziplog bag. It’s mess free and delicious!

This easy chicken marinade you can make for dinner can be made within 30 minutes or 1 day before you need to cook a meal. I usually mix the ingredients into a bowl before adding to the Ziploc bag. You can also mix the ingredients right in the bag without a bowl.

Why is marinating important anyways? Marinating your protein or vegetables will add more flavor and moisture to your meal! There is nothing worse than having a dry or unseasoned meal especially when you are very hungry. This chicken can go great with any sides! I like to include carrots, potatoes, green beans, corn or squash. Pick your favorite!
