Make Your Own Marinades

I was cleaning up after dinner and thinking about what to do with a chicken breast I had thawed for the next day. The mustard jar I’d used for sandwiches still had a bit in it, but not enough to use for another sandwich. You all know I hate to throw a good thing away so I dumped the bit of salad dressing from the bottom of the salad bowl into the mustard jar, the dregs from our wine glasses, added some olive oil, lemon juice, a tablespoon of Italian seasoning and shook it up.

I dumped the whole thing into a resealable freezer bag with the chicken breast. The next day I dumped it all out into a roasting pan and baked it up.

Result? Delicious chicken!
