  • Mix with your hands so that they all “bathe” in the marinade. Tighten with cling film and put in the refrigerator for 6-8 hours. Stir periodically, as the sauce is liquid and drips down the dishes. But I must say that chicken meat will absorb a lot of marinade, which will give it extra juiciness. If there is no time, leave it for at least an hour, but already at room temperature.
