Chicken Breast Marinade Ingredients
I have adapted the chicken breast marinade recipe slightly, but you can also add your own variations in order to make it slightly hotter or you can even add another flavor.
- 1 cup tomato sauce
- 1 cup oyster sauce
- 1 cup honey
- 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
- salt and pepper
- handful chopped mixed herbs
- Mix everything together in a bowl
- Before you put the chicken in there, they need to be flattened out. You can give it a couple of whacks with the back of a pan.
- It is best you leave this overnight, but you can also use it straight away.
- Put the chicken on the grill and keep on basting the leftover marinade on the chicken as you turn it.
Serving your grilled chicken breast
Don’t just put this on a bun and serve it. This is where your creativity comes through. Serve an interesting mango and rocket salad with a couple of wedges with this or potatoes which have been cut thinly and baked in the oven with stock and onions or cream. There are lots you can think of.

Balsamic, lemon or mustard are a couple of other ingredients that can be used to create different flavors.
Top tips for marinating grilled chicken
*Try to limit the oil in the recipe because the flavors won’t stand out as much.
*Don’t forget about the chicken and leave it marinating for too long because the acid will break down the flesh.
*Cover the chicken in a bowl, but preferably you should place it in a zip-lock bag and put this in a bowl so it doesn’t spill out.
*About 4 minutes before you stop grilling the chicken, stop basting extra marinade for health reasons, but the leftover chicken breast marinade you can boil up and use it as a sauce for the chicken.
