Beer Marinated Chicken

This simple marinade elevates, but doesn’t overpower grilled chicken all while keeping it very moist. Perfect for a party – make it ahead and chill for the perfect picnic food. And buy a good, brown mustard so you can use the rest for pretzel dipping!

1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together oil and mustard.
2. Add beer and lemon juice and whisk until smooth. Stir in garlic, salt, pepper, basil, and thyme.
3. Add chicken and turn to coat well. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours and up to 12 hours.

You can grill the chicken like you would any BBQ chicken, which is how we like it.
Or, bake it in the oven: Place chicken pieces in a pan so they’re not touching. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and bake for 30 minutes. Lower the heat to 350 degrees and cook for an additional 20-30 minutes more until juices run clear when poked with a sharp knife or the internal temperature is 165 degrees. For a more browned chicken, you can cook the pieces under the broiler for the last 5 minutes.
