Garlic Beer Marinated Chicken

Garlic Beer Marinated Chicken Recipe - chicken marinated in beer, lemon juice, Italian seasonings and garlic - SO good. Let the chicken marinated overnight for tons of amazing flavor. Grill for 12-15 minutes - so easy!

I still had some beer in the fridge from the Beer-B-Q chicken we made for Labor Day, so I decided to try another beer marinated chicken. I made this marinade an Italian marinade with lots of garlic and Italian seasoning. My favorite flavors!

I let the chicken marinate overnight to get maximum flavor in the chicken. A quick tip on grilling chicken - pound the chicken to an even thickness before marinating. It really helps the chicken cook evenly and not dry out.

As you can see, we grilled a lot of chicken. We ate it for lunch all week. It was super yummy! It was really juicy and packed full of flavor. We both gave this chicken two thumbs up!

  4. This sound delish!! What type of beer did you use? We will probably use the bone-in chicken. I'm sure that would be ok, huh?

  5. Tricia - I use whatever is in the fridge. I've used Michelob Ultra and Abita Amber. I think bone in chicken will work fine. You will just have to cook it longer than the boneless.

  6. This sounds so good, one problem though, we live in an apartment and can't have a grill. Is this something I can do in the oven or a frying pan?

  7. LiveLaughLove - you can cook the chicken in the skillet and/or oven. I like to cook the chicken a few minutes on each side and finish it off in the oven at 400 degrees for 10 minutes.
