Memorial Day marks the beginning of summer, which is our absolute favorite time here in L.A. Here's a simple recipe to marinate your chicken (or pork, or veggies) for today's Memorial Day Festivities. Ideally you'd marinate these for 6-8 hours, but just a few hours will do just fine. We marinated our chicken drumsticks for a mere four hours yesterday, and they turned out a treat.


1 cup soy sauce
2 tbsp organic honey
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp ginger
1 bottle cold Singha beer

In a small mixing bowl, combine all ingredients except for the beer. Whisk them together with for so that honey dissolves. Pour that over the chicken, which should be laid flat in a large container. Then pour beer over the chicken so that it's covered completely. Cover with plastic wrap or foil and store in the refrigerator until your grill is hot and you're ready to rock. Enjoy!
