This is the easiest marinade I have ever used, and one of the most popular with my family. This recipe also works well with any cut of chicken--thighs, legs, etc.

I just put the soy and garlic in a Ziploc bag and thought it needed something more so I added 1/2 cup canola oil 2 tablespoons of Worcestershire and 2 tablespoons of Sherry. I baked it in the oven because the weather was bad. I just poured the marinade over the chicken and turned the chicken every 15 minutes to 'baste'. The chicken was full of flavor. Read More

Delicious recipe!! I took some advice from other reviewers and I added 1 tbsp of brown sugar 1/4 c of canola oil and some ginger seasoning (I will use fresh next time I just didn't have any on hand). I baked in the oven at 350 for 30 minutes (turned it half way through)...it came out perfect! Read More

I cut my chicken into strips and baked it in the juice for somewhere between 15-20 min. I only marinated it for 45min and doubled the garlic added some water (1T.) and olive oil (1/4th cup) and a little apple cider vinegar (1t.) to keep it from being to salty. It turned out wonderful not to salty and very tender. Love it! Would be good over rice if you bake it in the juice! My hunny gave it a 5 out of 5 stars then changed it to a 4. I am giving it 5 for how great it is for the little work! Read More

This was such a easy recipe. The chicken was extreamly moist and tender. The second time I made it I added 1/4 c. of oil and about a teaspoon of chilie powder. YUMMM! Also if you feel like splurging a bit top it with some munster cheese and sauteed mushrooms: ) Read More

I have used this marinade for years and it is easy and delicious. I sometimes do variations like the other reviewers. The most frequent one that I use is I add the juice of a lemon to it and a Tbsp of Olive Oil. It is also wonderful to marinate pork chops or pork loin in. Also I like to use Braggs Aminos instead of soy sauce (a lot less sodium). Read More

We loved this chicken recipe. The soy is strong so if soy isn't your favorite you may want to pass on this. I served the chicken with hot buttered noodles and steamed broccoli. Yum. Thanks Tracy! Read More

This was a great way to have chicken Tracy. It's very versatile and tastes good with just about any additions like minced ginger or green onions. I used tenderloins and used this in a stir-fry. Thank for sharing. Read More
