Marinade for Delmarva BBQ chicken

  • l

(from the Kiwanis, et al, roadside stands)

A few weeks ago, somebody said they'd look into the marinade's recipe. I always love stopping by the Kiwanis stand on Rte 404 at Rte 16 on the way to Rehoboth. I let my nephew the chef - the one who used to work at the Adams-Morgan tapas restaurant (Azuna's?) before the boss ran off with the money (the place operates as a soup & salad place for now, run by the owners of the bar upstairs) - taste that lovely chicken and asked him to guess the main ingredients of the marinade. Within 10 seconds, he said...

apple cider vinegar.

Not white vinegar mind you - he said a.c. vinegar leaves a certain tingle on the tongue. He guessed other ingredients to be salt, pepper & some garlic.

Anybody else have any input?
