Recipe: Schmidt Chicken

This recipe was submitted by a friend, Mama J from Seattle, WA. “OK, here is my recipe. I think it was published in a magazine WAY long time ago, but I don’t know which one or how to credit. We call it “Schmidt chicken” and it’s been a family favorite for 3 generations. We do this probably once a week. If you grill breasts and have leftovers, slicing them makes for a great addition to salad the next day. One recipe can make quite a bit of chicken, but if you have a crowd, you can just double it! Easy peasy.” Sounds amazing! Thank you Mama J!!!
Schmidt Chicken
  • 1 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 Tbs seasoned salt
  • 1 tsp poultry seasoning
  • 1 egg
  • Chicken (can use any kind of chicken, bone-in, skin on, or bone-less skinless, light or dark meat)
Whisk together marinade. Turn on grill. Put chicken in marinade. Let stand for 5-10 minutes, at the most. Too much time in the marinade makes rubbery chicken. Grill chicken, dunking it in the marinade periodically as it cooks.
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 15 minutes
