Simple Marinade for Chicken or Pork

Here’s a really simple recipe for a 30-minute marinade to be used on your chicken or pork before tossing it on the grill. I use it regularly for pork tenderloin and boneless chicken breasts.


½ Cup Apple Cider Vinegar

3 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil

1 Tablespoon Spicy Brown or Dijon Mustard

1 clove Garlic finely chopped

½ teaspoon Red Pepper Flakes

Pinch of Sea Salt

Pinch of Black Pepper


Place your pork or chicken in a one-gallon ziplock bag. Combine the Apple Cider Vinegar, Mustard, Garlic, and dried spices in a small mixing bowl. Slowly stir in the Olive Oil and continue whisking until complete. Pour the marinade into the bag along with the meat, seal and place in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes. You’re ready to rock, so get that grill fired up and get those sides prepped! 

Let me know what you think and enjoy!
