I do that a lot with meat I buy from the store, but I really don't buy much meat from stores, I raise almost all my own meat. I have been making marinades lately to cover the lack of taste and the dryness of store bought meat . I will be happy when this batch of meat birds are ready to go in the freezer, just about another month!

If you buy meats, you can put a serving or two in a freezer bag with the marinade and freeze them. When you want to cook them put them in the fridge for 8-48 hours.

Thanks for the replies, probably 1/2 is a fair estimate, although most of the maranades I tend to make are like LILSPARKGIRL, vinegar, lemon juice or lime juice, herbs fresh from my garden and not much else. The recipes I was looking at had pineapple juice, and sweeteners, and when I was done marinading most of it was waste since I just did one breast. I think in the future I will freeze some of the sauces, I fell right in love with the ginger marinade posted here, good on chicken, steak or pork all on the grill. Summer is my grill time, although I do grill in the winter it seems like relaxed in the summer.

I suggest taking only 1/2 the marinade calories.
I have noticed that this is what major cookbooks and cooking magazines also do with their recipe analysis.

I don;t count them since I just use a tsp or two of evoo and vinegar and herbs. I don't eat the skin of chicken so I figure the amount of calories is negligible. I tend to leave space at the top of my calorie range to account for these "free" calories.

Browsing through recipes here in spark people I noticed many grilling recipes include a marinade, when I look at the calories counted some include the marinade and some do not, most marinades end up with 90% of them being tossed or burned up on the grill if basting. How do most of you count these calories?
