There’s nothing better than a slightly sweet-yet-savoury, sticky chicken marinade that browns perfectly when it’s grilled…

This is my absolute favorite recipe for marinading chicken – it’s so easy to make and it always tastes delicious! It’s also completely healthy, which makes me love it even more.

This recipe is refined sugar-free, dairy-free, gluten-free, grain-free and free of any processed ingredients.

I hope that you enjoy it as much as I do! xo
