Yummy Chicken Marinade - Pickled Herring? You crazy.


 I just made the best chicken.  Oh my, so tender!

I love pickled herring, but I don't like to eat the onions.  I took the left over onions in brine and marinated 2 chicken legs and a thigh with some other stuff and bingo... delicious.  Here is the recipe:

  • brine and onions from a jar (or two) of pickled herring.
  • 3 tbsp white wine vinigar
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 clove garlic (smashed and diced)
  • sprinkle of paprika
  • salt and pepper to taste (please don't taste the raw chicken)
  • pat of butter (save for when the chicken is hot)

Let the chicken soak in the marinade for at least a couple hours inside the refrigerator.

Bake in the oven skin down for 30 min at 350°F.

Turn chicken skin side up and melt a bit of butter on top.  Bake for 30 min at 375° F or until juices run clear.

The vinagar makes the chicken extra tender and juicy.
