To marinate the chicken, use a store-bought marinade or make one from scratch using your favorite recipe. If your marinade includes chunky ingredients like garlic or ginger pieces, blend the ingredients in a blender until you have a thick, uniform liquid. Prick the chicken all over with a fork to help the marinade absorb into the meat. Place the chicken pieces in a resealable bag with the marinade and turn the bag a few times to coat the chicken thoroughly. Refrigerate chicken for up to 24 hours. Remove it from the container with the marinade and pat it dry with a paper towel before cooking. If you want to learn different ways to cook chicken after it’s been marinated, keep reading!
