Cold Marinated Chicken


Here's a perfect dish for summer's parties - chicken, prepared in advance and served cool, and with tons of flavor. It goes well with almost anything - a creamy potato salad, pasta salads... anything, really. It's a great part of any spread, and easy to make, too.

Cold Marinated Chicken
(printable recipe)

1 kilo chicken breast or thigh fillets
salt, pepper
olive oil

100 ml olive oil
100 ml balsamic vinegar
50 ml runny honey
1 tbsp flaky sea salt (I used one seasoned with ramps - delicious!)
black pepper, as much as you want
2 garlic cloves, minced

Heat the oven to 200°C. Place the chicken in an oven-proof dish, drizzle with olive oil and season with a little bit of salt and pepper. Fry in the oven for about 15 minutes - the chicken should be cooked through. (Make sure you check it, the time can vary.)

Whisk together all the ingredients for the marinade, and mix with the chicken in double plastic bags. Place in the fridge for at least a few hours, or over night. (Turn the bags every now and again to make sure all the chicken is marinated.) When you're ready to serve, take out the chicken, cut into thin slices and arrange on a platter. Drizzle with some of the marinade, if desired.

This looks great - the perfect thing to eat where I live (super hot here this time of year).

Kallmarinerat är verkligen ett lätt sätt att få fräs på kött! Kyckling, fläskfilé, räkor.. you name it :)

Ditt smaksatta salt skulle jag gärna få tag på!

Jen - yes, I cant figure that out... Will try to change though!

Maria, det är nytt från Falksalt och heter Wild Garlic. Gott!

Testa JOZO Flingsalt med ekologiska kryddor istället för Falksalts variant. Istället för 2% krydda i saltet så har JOZO haft i mycket myckt mer. Dessutom ekologiska kryddor. Testat med andra recept och de är supergoda.

Bengt, om de bara gjorde lite roligare smaker skulle jag gärna använda dem. Som det är är jag inte så förtjust i "sammansatta blandningar", men deras citrus är god. Bryr mig dock inte ett dugg om att det är ekologiska kryddor, om jag ska vara helt ärlig :)

Allra mest använder jag helt vanligt salt - både vanligt bordsalt och flingsalt.
