In spring and summer, chicken steaks are one of the best meals. To make a wholesome and healthy meal, all you need to do is marinade them, sear or bake and serve it with some carbs like mashed potatoes, rice, or noodles and some vitamin-rich vegetables.The ingredients in the marinade cause the chicken tissue to breakdown and thereby allowing more moisture to be absorbed resulting into a juicier steak.

To marinade the chicken steaks uniformly, put a cleaned chicken breasts inside a sealable plastic bag (Zip lock bag works best) and use a mallet or a rolling pin to pound the chicken till it is about 1/4th inch thick uniformly. Remove the chicken from the bag, marinade it in the ingredients you desire and let it sit on the counter for 30 minutes or in the fridge for about an hour before you make the steak.

Here is a quick reference chart for making healthy chicken marinades by using just three ingredients from your pantry.
