BioHazard Chicken

Marinading is not my specialty. Sure, sure, I can make a perfectly tasty marinade, but it's the whole letting it sit thing that gets me every time. Usually I let that delicious seasoning sink in for, oh, I'd say 15-20 minutes or however long it take the grill to heat up! I just don't have the time to wait- we're hungry! I love this recipe as it is good after 24 hours or 24 minutes. It ain't pretty- looks pretty gory in the bag, like something being transported in a foam cooler to an awaiting transplant patient- but it's delightful when cooked to perfection over a nice hot flame!

I do recommend making the marinade in a Ziploc bag. Aside from it fulfilling the gruesome namesake, it makes for very easy mixing during prep and even easier clean-up. You may find this full recipe is a little too much for serving just 2-4. I usually cut it in half or more, but will keep at least one full garlic clove. It is great served with white rice and corn on the cob.

BioHazard Chicken

  • 1 C. Ketchup
  • 1/2 C. Soy Sauce (I keep low sodium on hand, but either works.)
  • 1/4 C. Honey
  • 1-2 Garlic Cloves, crushed & chopped
  • 2-12 Boneless Chicken Breasts

  1. Combine all ingrediants except chicken in large plastic Ziploc bag. Close bag tightly. Mush everything together until well mixed.
  2. Add chicken into bag and reseal. Massage marinade into meat.
  3. Chill chicken until it is ready to be grilled. Chicken will keep at least 24 hours, though it will still be yummy after only 15 minutes.
  4. Cook chicken over medium grill heat until cooked through, but still moist.

This sounds pretty yummy. And I love the name. I might just have to give it a try.
