Raise your hands if you’re ready for a new recipe to marinate your chicken.  Grilling season is just about upon us and like your wardrobe, sometimes your favorite grilled foods need a little pick me up.  Even if your usual favorites have done you good, it’s always nice to add a few new options into the mix.  A change.  A food makeover if you will.  This is how I feel about my usual grilled chicken recipes, I like them, they taste good but they could definitely use a new accent of flavor this year.     

Roasted Red Pepper Grilled Chicken

Well, if you’re like me and think you’re chicken can use some new threads or even just an accent or two, then I have the recipe for you.   It’s a simple Roasted Red Pepper marinade that will definitely give your chicken a much needed pick me up.  It’s a really flavorful sauce that you can make like “1-2-3”.  

Besides a few basic ingredients you will need a jar of roasted red peppers. Roasted red peppers in a jar are sweet, but they are also stored in an acidic brine that together help make a quick and flavorful marinade. The brine helps flavor the chicken quicker and the peppers add a nice roasted yet sweet touch. I prefer to buy basic roasted peppers and then add my own additional seasonings. Since all brands of roasted peppers are not created equal, you may need to adjust some of the acids in the recipe.    

To make this marinade/sauce all you do is MIX the roasted peppers and other ingredients into the blender, then pour it over the chicken breasts to marinate (refrigerate), and after about 2-3 hours it is ready to grill.  See 3 easy steps: (1) Mix (2) Marinate (3)Grill

TIP: The most important ingredient you’ll want need to incorporate into the recipe is “TIME”- a little advanced prep for getting the flavors to permeate the chicken breasts is definitely the key to flavor. 

Well, are you ready to make makeover that grilled chicken?   If you are then you can get the recipe below.  And remember as the warmer weather approaches, and you’re firing up those grills adding this Roasted Red Pepper Marinade to your food “wardrobe??? is as easy 1-2-3.
