Homemade ketchup marinade chicken

Ketchup goes with a lot of things, but did you know it also makes a pretty sweet marinade? Chicken’s in our good books for being a healthy, light and filling meat; get your protein kick in one of the most unusually tasty ways we know.

What you'll need
  • 5 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 120g onion, finely chopped
  • 60 ml vinegar
  • 120 ml water
  • 15 ml Worcestershire sauce
  • 125 ml ketchup
  • 2 teaspoon sugar
  • ½ teaspoon dry mustard
  • 2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoon ground pepper
Cooking directions

Add all ingredients apart from the chicken to a mixing bowl, stirring well.


Pour this over the chicken, cover and marinate in the fridge for at least 6 hours.


Remove the chicken - storing the marinade - and cook on a barbecue.


Boil your ketchup marinade in a small pot. Turn the heat down to simmer until the mixture thickens. Serve this on the side.

Nisa’s top-tip:

Feeling hot and healthy? Keep things cool in the summer heat with a bit of salad on the side… and perhaps an ice-cold beer to accompany.
