Chicken Marinades and such

I will post as many recipes for preparing chicken to freeze as I can today. These are the recipes I used last time I got 40 lbs. of chicken from Zaycon.

Mine comes tomorrow and I’m getting 80 lbs. this time so I’m going to try some new recipes. I hope they work!

I decided that this time I will prepare some of the marinades the day before to shorten the “chicken day” a little.
