Lexington Grilled Chicken – sweet and tangy grilled chicken! Only 6 ingredients in the marinade – cider vinegar, brown sugar, oil, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper – Perfect for a cookout! Everyone raves about this chicken. There are never any leftovers!!
This Lexington Grilled Chicken is a new favorite. It is sweet, spicy and tangy all in one bite. We loved this chicken!!! We’ve made this two weeks in a row. We just can’t get enough of it. Seriously delicious. It is also great reheated. We used in a quesadilla with some cheese, mushrooms and BBQ sauce. Awesome! I almost liked it better in the quesadilla than just by itself. Almost!
I have to admit that I was actually a little worried about this marinade. I am not a fan of cider vinegar. I was afraid this would be super vinegary. Thankfully it wasn’t. It also wasn’t super spicy despite all of the red pepper flakes. This got two thumbs up from us. Give it a try this weekend!! You won’t regret it!
