Taste Test

Taste test: marinades, Part 2

This week, judges share three more favorite marinades. We sampled a total of 16 brands, listing three top picks last week as well (Market Pantry and KC Masterpiece Honey teriyakis and Paula Deen Savannah). After marinating chicken overnight in each sauce, we grilled the breast meat for the tasting. When given the option, we selected the teriyaki or "original" flavors from each brand of marinade. We looked for taste, color and texture.
