Instead of buying premade sauces and marinades, try these tasty, quick marinades at your next cookout! If you're tired of eating the same old chicken recipe, these marinades are a great way to add flavor to your meals with some pantry staples.

These marinades work with all kinds of protein and taste awesome baked or pan-fried too. You can make them ahead for meal prepping or to marinate and freeze until you are ready to cook. I like to marinate my protein the night before I cook to get as much flavor as possible in the protein.

Pro tip: For easy cleanup, I like to make my marinade in a ziploc bag and then add my chicken or pork in!
