Albanian Chicken Marinades


These three Albanian chicken marinades are my favourite ones, they all compliment each other too so you can serve more then one flavour together.

There are so many chicken marinades that I have found, tried and tweaked to my liking. I have used ingredients that are easily sourced, espically in Albania! I have based the recipes on 4 chicken drumsticks, you can then double / half for the amount you have.
