I’m probably the last person on the planet to figure this out, but wanted to share this “Lightbulb Moment” for making the task of marinating a bit easier. I put a plastic bag into a bowl to hold it open and then put in the marinade ingredients and swished them around together. I had six huge chicken breasts, so figured I would need to use two separate bags, but much to my surprise, all six went into the bowl. Without the plastic bag, though, the whole thing would have spilled over onto the counter. I squeezed out as much of the air as possible and then twisted the top of the plastic bag, doubled it over, and secured it with a twist tie. With all of the air gone, the breasts are completely covered with the marinade, so I don’t need to worry about flipping them over to get both sides coated.
In about an hour they are going to reside in the Nesco Roaster to cook to juicy tenderness for our dinner, to be served with with fresh green beans and lightly curried rice.
