Goat Milk Marinated BBQ Chicken

Goat Milk Marinated BBQ Chicken

Marinating meat in milk is common a practise around the world, when I lived in Jordan I couldn’t figure out how they never had tough meat it was always tender and amazing (even the cheaper cuts were great).

I finally found out the tricks of the Middle Eastern BBQ marinade …. MILK …. who knew !

I use goat milk as I love the flavour it adds but you can use cow or even yogurt.

Goat Milk Marinated BBQ Chicken

This marinade is used with all cuts of meat, the trick is to marinate for 24 hours for tender meat.

Try pairing this chicken with some Grilled Lemon Garlic Butter Zucchini
