Paleo 5 Ingredient Chicken Marinade

Paleo 5 Ingredient Chicken Marindade

      We love grilling in our house, and especially love grilling chicken! I always know that grilled chicken tastes better when you take the time to marinate it but I found myself not having the ingredients on hand that most marinades called for. I came up with this marinade based off of flavors I enjoyed from other marinades I had used in the past, but put a paleo twist on it.
     Does anyone know how to take a picture of chicken and make it look pretty?! Ha ha Chicken is just one of those things that doesn't photograph well but trust me, this tastes SO good! I love to grill a few pounds of chicken tenders to have leftovers for lunches during the week. This recipe can be easily adapted to be non-paleo ( and a little less expensive to make) just use the substitutes listed. 

Chicken Marinade

1/2 C coconut aminos ( my favorite brand is from trader joes) ( you can sub soy sauce if you can have  soy)
1/2 C avocado or olive oil 
2 TBSP sesame oil 
2 TBSP coconut sugar ( you can sub brown sugar)
1/2 tsp salt

Pour ingredients over 2-3 lbs of chicken in a large ziplock bag and marinate for at least 4 hours before grilling.
Make sure you rotate the chicken or shake the bag you have the chicken in every few hours to make sure all the pieces are coated.
