I have experimented with so many marinades for chicken using my neighbors as guinea pigs and this one has been branded by all as simply delectable, thus the title.

Instructions Checklist
  • Mix together Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, teriyaki sauce, liquid smoke, and molasses in a resealable plastic bag until the molasses has dissolved. Add sesame seeds, brown sugar, paprika, garlic salt, garlic pepper, minced garlic, and canola oil; mix well. Coat chicken thighs with the marinade, seal, and marinate for 4 hours in the refrigerator, redistributing the chicken in the marinade occasionally.

  • Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat.

  • Remove chicken from marinade and shake off excess. Grill on preheated grill until the chicken has reached an internal temperature of 165 degrees F (75 degrees C), and is firm and opaque, about 12 minutes per side. Discard any remaining marinade.

Oh my goodness! This stuff is great. I made mostly as written...never buy garlic salt or garlic pepper so just added salt/pepper and more garlic (probably at least twice the called for amount). Only marinated the 4 hours and did on the grill. My 13 year old son just devoured it! Will make again and hopefully marinade even longer next time. Served with grilled pineapple and rice Read More

The name says it all! I used 4 large boneless chicken breasts that I pounded down thin and cut in half. I used olive oil instead of canola and let this marinate all day. It had a hint of sweetness along with a hint of smokiness a very nice combination of flavors. I served this with rice and a garden salad but would love to try Wilemon's bacon ranch pasta salad with this one! Read More

Husband called this the best chicken I've ever made. I have to agree. Do not skip the liquid smoke as that is the "secret ingredient" in my opinion. I also did not have garlic salt or garlic pepper so I used 1/2 t garlic powder 1/4 t salt and 1/4 t pepper. Marinated overnight. Will make again and again and again. Read More

Chicken does not get any better ths this. For those who rated less than 4 1/2 stars and stated they did not follow the recipe why bother rating something YOU did not do right? Too pungent or salty really? Read More

This was good. My grill isn't working so I had to bake it and that worked fine. I do wish I had marinated it longer than the 4 hours to really let the flavors soak in. I could not taste the liquid smoke at all so I guess I'm less sensitive to it than some! Made as written and will marinate it longer next time! Read More

I haven't tried this recipe but wanted to say; I'm slightly dyslexic and thought your description said "I have been using my neighbors guinea pigs" (as in instead of chicken.) After reading and re-reading it and all the comments in horror and confusion I finally realized my mistake. Now I can't stop laughing. Cheers! Read More

I had to slightly modify this recipe due to lack of certain ingredients. I cut out the liquid smoke sesame seeds molasses and garlic pepper and it still turned out to be a fantastic teriyaki marinade. I also added a dash of cayenne pepper. All I had on hand was chicken breast tenderloins so they only required about 8 min grilling time on each side. I will be making this again and again! Read More

Sorry for the long review but I am really excited about this one. I followed it to a T almost. The difference being I used a package of what they call around here "Pick of the Chick" three thighs three legs and three breasts all with the bone it. I grilled the legs and thighs over indirect heat for a total of 25-30 minutes. They were done inside and the skin was a golden brown with a little char. They were beautiful! While we ate the greatest grilled chicken dinner ever with the legs and thighs I continued cooking the breasts for an additional 10 minutes for a total cooking time of 40 minutes. I was thinking "I'm sure they will be sort of dried out like most big breasts with the bone in so tomorrow we will have grilled chicken salad." The next day I took the chicken off the bone and zapped it in the microwave to take the chill off. I then topped our salad with it and I was simply dumbfounded. The leftover chicken was still very moist very flavorful and so tender. It was the best grilled chicken salad I've ever had. The negative reviews are crazy. It is simply delicious. This is not a difficult nor expensive recipe to make. The flavor tenderness and the moistness has made this one of my favorite grilled chicken recipes. Thank you Wilemon for the excellent recipe! I want to come to your house for dinner! Read More
