Asian-Marinated Drumsticks

 

It feels a bit like cheating to call this a “recipe.” Maybe we could call it a method? The method I’m talking about it is to pre-marinade your meats by dumping them in a bag with a bottle of vinegar-based dressing, and storing them in the freezer. The meat soaks in the flavor, and the marinade helps tenderize the meat. I’m using an Asian-flavored vinaigrette and chicken drumsticks for this post, but feel free to change it up with YOUR favorite dressing and chicken, pork, or beef!

    I do this all the time. I taught my daughters when they went to college to buy boneless chicken breast or steaks(cut in half) and put in individual ziplock bags, with a marinade or italian dressing, and then freeze. They were able to then take it out of freezer and put on their George Forman grills.
