Best bbq chicken marinade
This one of the best marinades for grilled chicken. I bet your entire family will love it. We love it so much on chicken that we also tried it on pork.
We have basted it on pork chops and we have even made some yummy grilled chicken kabobs. Dinner does not have to be complicated to be amazing!
- A1 steak sauce
- your favorite BBQ sauce (We have an easy homemade BBQ sauce.)
How to make Barbecue chicken marinade
- First, combine the BBQ sauce and the A1 in a bowl. Mix it together well and pour over chicken. Marinade for 3-4 hours or over night.
- Tip: I like to use these Freezer bag holders – They are totally optional but it is like having another pair of hands in the kitchen! You will love how handy they are.
- Next, fire up your grill and put the chicken on the grill grates. This will vary based on the size of your chicken but typically it takes 8-10 minutes per side. You can use a meat thermometer to make sure the chicken reaches an internal temp of 165 degrees.
- We really like to mix up an extra batch of the marinade and we like to use a grilling basting brush to brush our chicken while grilling. YUM! That flavor is amazing from that extra step.
I would serve this with our Parmesan Grilled Zucchini and Foil Pack Grilled Potatoes. My family also loves this 15 minutes Stuffed Cheesy Bread.
Another favorite is grilled corn. Not only is corn easy and fast to cook but so inexpensive.
My only requirement is that it is easy and budget friendly! I’m sure you agree!
Money Saving tip:
I save money on A1 Sauce by waiting for a sale and using coupons. You will most often find BBQ sauce and A1 sauce on sale in the summer months, so stock up in May, June, July, and August.
We love to save money and this helps for sure!

We don’t have a grill, would this be good in the oven?
