Perfect Marinated Chicken Breasts
April 06, 2016

This is my aunt's go-to recipe when grilling chicken at family parties and it's delicious as-is. My star rating is based on the recipe as written (minus one star, just cause it's pretty high in sodium). My daughter requested it last night and I didn't have all the ingredients on hand so I made some substitutions and it worked out well-- we had a lemon essenced sparkling water, so I used that and added the juice of 2 lemons and about 1-2 tbsn brown sugar to imitate the lemon-lime soda. I also used diced garlic instead of powdered and about 1/3 the amount of soy sauce and subbed some liquid aminos, still using less than the amount called for by about half. (Coconut aminos would be an even better option, but I have yet to get my hands on any). We only had about 25 minutes to marinate it, but it still came out moist and flavorful with that familiar flavor that I'm used to when it's made as written. Just wanted to share this with others in case they avoid soda like our family does.
