I LOVE Baking soda

My sister just shared this secret with me. I am not the biggest chicken fan, I just can't ever make it to where I like it. This is supposed to make chicken so tender and juicy. I am trying it tonight for dinner to see if it will do the same thing with pork. Chicken is on the menu for tomorrow.

Marinade the chicken for 15 minutes. Just kind of rub the baking soda in and pat it on. No need to add water, the juices from the chicken will take care of it. Once the 15 minutes is up wash it off and cook as desired!

A few months ago Madison had written all over her bedroom wall with pencil and I could not get it off. So I googled how to clean the wall. Baking Soda. It worked! I made a little paste and rubbed it all over the wall and wiped it off with a damp cloth. Thank goodness or she would have been dead. There was no way I was going to repaint her room 2 weeks before we moved.

Another trick I learned over the years with baking soda is using it to clean off the bottom of pans. If you cook something and burn the bottom of the pan put some water and baking soda in the bottom and gently simmer, the stuck stuff will come right off. It works!

What are your secret tips?

***FYI, keep it marinating for no more than 15-20 minutes otherwise it will taste like Baking Soda and be sure to wash it off. ENJOY!!
