Mix all marinade ingredients in a large bowl. Set aside ¼ of the marinade (and place in separate sealed container in fridge)
Cover raw chicken with remaining marinade in a sealed container and place in fridge to marinate overnight (8 hours)
Remove chicken from marinade and dispose of used marinade. *The chicken will have a pinkish/orange color from the marinade.
Grill (or cook in frying pan on stovetop over medium-high heat) marinated chicken until thoroughly cooked (about 15-20 minutes), brushing with the marinade you set aside, before removing from the grill.
💭Top TipThis Copycat Chicken Monterey recipe is better grilled, but if it's too cold to grill outside and you don't have an indoor grill, then a stove top grill may be a good option for you. But you can also make it in a frying pan (that's what I did, as I bought my stovetop grill AFTER I made this recipe)! See my Amazon Recommendations (in NOTES) for stove top grill, if you don't have one. If you don't have a stove top grill, then check out these Amazon Recommendations (affiliate links)
