Short on Time: How We Created a Quick Marinade for the Busy Schedule

Contrary to popular belief, time is not free. Whether you're a busy Mom picking up your kiddos from school, a busy Dad shuffling his schedule so he can coach t-ball, or just a bachelor who's so busy you don't have time to uplevel your cooking, we finally have a solution for you.


Marinating vs. Not Marinating

Marinating isn't just about adding flavor – it's about enhancing the texture and juiciness of your meat. When you marinate chicken thighs, the flavors penetrate deep into the meat, resulting in a more tender and succulent dish. Plus, it locks in the outer layer of the meat, giving it that beautiful golden hue.

Quick Marination Process

With Dad's Own Colorado Cooking Sauce, marinating your chicken thighs is quick and effortless. Simply place the chicken in a resealable plastic bag or shallow dish, pour the sauce over it, and ensure each piece is evenly coated. Then, let it marinate in the refrigerator for just 20-30 minutes while you prepare the rest of your meal.

The Difference in Flavor

The outcome of marinating vs. not marinating is like night and day. Without marination, your chicken thighs might lack flavor and tenderness, leaving you with a bland and uninspiring meal. However, with Dad's Own Colorado Cooking Sauce, each bite bursts with bold and savory flavors, elevating your dinner to a whole new level.

Cooking Technique

Personally, we prefer cooking chicken thighs on a barbeque grill to get more bang for your buck! The open flame caramelizes the marinade and brings out the true flavors of the chicken.
