You can use this savoury, delicious marinade with a kick for more than just chicken—try it with pork, beef, even vegetables. It features soy sauce, white wine vinegar, garlic, canola oil, and lots of spices, including cumin, paprika, oregano, and a pinch of cayenne. You can let the chicken marinate for 4 hours, but we highly recommend letting it go for up to overnight, which imparts the most flavour. Proceed to cook or grill the chicken as desired and dinner is served.
