Recipe: Cathy’s Favorite Marinade

My favorite marinade for meat and poultry:

1/4 c. olive or coconut oil
1/4 c. balsamic or apple cider vinegar
1 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. dried basil leaves
1/2 tsp. salt

Bake the meat or poultry in the marinade. Delicious!

Recipe: Butter Baked Chicken

Here’s one of our family’s favorite chicken recipes. It’s so delicious and sooo easy.

1 chicken, cut up

4 Tbsp. butter, melted (no substitutes except coconut oil)

Unrefined sea salt

Brush one side of each chicken piece with butter. Sprinkle with salt. Turn the chicken pieces over. Repeat the process of brushing with butter and sprinkling with salt. Bake skin side up at 350 degrees 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 hours or till the chicken pieces are tender. (Breast pieces will take less time.) To speed up the baking of the chicken, you can bake it as high as 425 degrees and it will still bake fine.
