I'm making chicken satay from Cradle of Flavor and bringing it raw to a BBQ to be grilled there. The recipe says to marinate 1 to 2 hours at room temperature. If I marinate the chicken in the refrigerator, how long should I let it go? I assume longer. I know a recipe that I have for pork skewers from a Thai book says to marinate 3 hours on the counter, but to marinate overnight if you do it in the refrigerator.
I would probably marinate the chicken on the counter if it was just for me and my husband, but I guess since I'm feeding strangers, I'll follow more conventional modern food safety rules.
Thanks for the help!
