Garlic Beer Marinated Chicken

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!

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
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
2-3 lb boneless chicken

Whisk together beer, lemon juice, olive oil, Italian seasoning, garlic, salt, pepper and cayenne. Pour over chicken and refrigerate a few hours up to overnight.

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