I just recently moved to the Bahamas and chicken is wicked expensive, except frozen. I was wondering if I can marinate chicken while it's defrosting and, if so, does it take longer?
yes, you can definitely marinate while defrosting, and yes, it will take longer. One other thing to keep in mind is that the marinade will make the chicken defrost more quickly.
i'm not sure why you can't wait til it's thawed? the defrost will only dilute the marinade and if you're using something high in acid it will affect the bird's texture in a way you might not want.
