Notes

Use this again: The marinated and cooked chicken can be shredded and added to chicken salad or made into a wrap.
For one or two servings: You can marinate enough chicken for one or two and use the remaining marinade for salad dressing or simply divide the marinade ingredients in half if you don’t want leftovers.
Store leftovers: The marinated and cooked chicken can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for about 3 days; the marinade (don’t save marinade that has been used on raw chicken) itself can be stored in a jar in the fridge, but you should use it within a day for maximum fresh flavor.
