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!

Ingredients:

  • 1 (12-oz) beer
  • 6 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp Italian seasoning
  • 6 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • ½ tsp cayenne pepper

  • Remove chicken from marinade and grill until done, approximately 12-15 minutes.

Notes:

Pound chicken to an even thickness before marinating. This will help the chicken cook evenly and stay juicy.
To cook chicken without a grill, pan sear for 3 to 4 minutes per side. Place on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake at 400ºF for 10 minutes, until the internal temperature reaches 165ºF.

  1. Never have enough chicken recipes. It's so budget friendly and versatile. This recipe is simple yet very delicious. It gives the chicken such wonderful flavor, and it came out nice and juicy. Kids and hubby approved!

  2. 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.

  3. 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?

  4. 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.
