Ovenbackedchicken.org has 5 great cooking tips for baked chicken. One of the best ones for increasing flavor and moisture content is marinating. Marinating chicken before baking is a wonderful way of infusing the spices and herbs through the meat cavities to achieve moist meat and great taste.
A basic marinade can be created from salt, pepper and lemon, and some ready to use mixes of sauces, such as the herbs and spices available from the supermarket or often corner store. Splashes of acid like lemon, orange juice, lime and wine vinegar not only erases foul odor from the meat but it also tenderizes the meat. Sometimes, wines can also be a great and flavorful marinate.
Whatever marinade you choose, salt and pepper must always be included, but should be adjusted for low salt diets. Simply rub marinade onto the chicken, coating evenly, including the under skin of the breast. Refrigerate for about three to four hours but marinating overnight will give you the best results.
