can any vinaigrette be a marinade?
I read something on Cook's Illustrated blasting users of Wishbone Italian dressing for using this as a marinade. But I make vinaigrette all the time and except for maybe a heavy dose of acid(vinegar I mean) can't any vinaigrette be used as a marinade given reasonable marinating times?
And the vinaigrette I have in mind to marinade is this:
red wine vinegar
chile in adobo
for chicken breasts
Theoretically, yes. The problem with Wishbone (or most bottled products) would be all the other stuff, like sugars, thickeners and other things that could affect taste, texture or what happens when you cook the food.
If you were planning to grill those chicken breasts, I'd leave out the honey, which will likely burn on the grill.
