This injection marinade adds real heat under the skin of any poultry. If you want a little fire in your bird, this is a great sauce to use. Make sure you only put small amounts in each place so you don't end up with large pockets of hot sauce.

What You'll Need

  • 1 cup (240 mL) chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) Louisiana hot sauce
  • 3 tablespoons (45 mL) Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon (15 mL) garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon (15 mL) cayenne pepper
  • 2 teaspoons (10 mL) salt

How to Make It

1. Place all ingredients into a small saucepan.  Bring to a medium simmer on the stove top for about 1 minute. Reduce heat and let mixture simmer for an additional 2-3 minutes until salt has dissolved. Remove from the heat and allow marinade mixture sit for 10 minutes or so until it reaches room temperature.
