Buttermilk Marinade

The key to grilling chicken is to create two heat zones: one for high, direct heat (over the coals) and one for low, indirect heat (away from the coals).

Messy marinades? Let Mason jars come to the rescue! Use a Mason jar and a reCAP wide mouth POUR lid for a mess-free marinade container.

Why we love this hack:

1. It travels better to BBQs.

2. It is less messy and wasteful than ziplock bags.

We’re all about reducing plastic waste whenever possible. Plus, using tongs to scoop the chicken out of a ziplock bag is just a struggle.

3. It allows members of family to pick their own flavors.

You can tweak your recipes based on personal preferences. (Example: I like red pepper flakes in some of my marinades, while my fiancé enjoys extra cilantro.)

4. A typical chicken breast fits nicely in a pint jar

A pint jar is a nice option for dinner for one or two. A larger jar, such as a pint-and-a-half or a quart jar, would be a better choice for preparing a family-size portion.

5.The reCAP lid keeps it sealed and safe

Using a reCAP ensures your marinade will stay sealed, fresh, and prevent germs from spreading. (Just be sure to wash your gasket when you clean up.)
