Kentucky-style grilled chicken

In my ongoing pursuit for health and happiness in the absence of masses of what the world calls “wealth”, I subscribe to like-minded blogs and try to apply what I learn as I go along. Today I got an email from ModernChristianWomen for the recipe below, which looks and sounds delicious! I’m definitely going to try this one, and I thought you might like it too.


This is one of those unique recipes that you have to try to believe it’s good.  The ingredients are a very unique combination (in my opinion – I’ve never had anything like it before!) but the result is an incredibly savory, smokey grilled flavor.  You can use this marinade on both chicken and turkey – I haven’t tried it on pork, but I think it would be delicious!  I have also tried this on fresh corn on the cob…very good!  This recipe is a really nice change of pace from the more traditional BBQ chicken or Italian Dressing marinated chicken.  My family requests it often – and I think yours will too!


  • 1 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 5 teaspoons Worcestershire Sauce
  • 4 teaspoons hot sauce (I use Frank’s)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon mustard (I used yellow, but feel free to experiment here!)
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar (or honey or your favorite sweetener)


Combine all ingredients in a bow and mix well.  Add desired meat to 1 cup of mixture and let marinate for 4 hours.  Grill over medium heat for 20 minutes – turn and grill for 20 – 30 more minutes until juices run clear and meat is cooked through.  Baste occasionally with extra marinade. 

The total cost for this recipe is $.55 – pretty good deal!  I love that a few simple pantry ingredients combine to create an amazing meal! And the difference in cost between this recipe and a store-bought marinade is about $2.00.  GREAT savings!

First of all, I should admit that I have tried these kinds of flavour combinations before, so I know they work and taste awesome. Secondly, I have no idea how this recipe translates into rands. I’ll have to make it, calculate it, and update this post.
