The best way to marinate a chicken and guarantee exceptional flavor infusion is to place it in a large Ziploc bag along with the marinade of your choice. It also makes for easy clean up as well.

  • 1-1/2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Espelette pepper or Spanish smoked hot paprika
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 2 cloves garlic, sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
