Yummy Chicken Marinade

As I was cooking this chicken, the Wee One walked into the kitchen.  He asked me what smelled so good.  I showed him the chicken that was already cooked.  The Wee One wanted to eat the chicken right then and there.

Once I told him dinner was ready to be eaten, he began to eat one of the pieces of chicken as he was loading up his plate.  He ended up eating two pieces of chicken.  For him, that is a big deal.  He has a small appetite.

The Wee One kept talking about how delicious the chicken tasted.  I think that means this marinade is a keeper.
