A delicious barbecue sauce for chicken on the grill. My father has used this since I can remember, and he always receives the compliments at mealtime.

Fantastic!! I made this a few times already. The first time I only let the chicken marinade for a few hours. The next two times I prepared it in the morning and let it marinade all day. Soooo moist and tender. It was good both ways but the longer you can marinade your chicken the better. I did scale the recipe back a bit since it makes quite alot.This is my new standard way of doing chicken on the grill. Thanks so much for sharing!! Read More

Ummmm, NO....Sorry, did this exactly as shown on the recipe. I make marinades all the time. This was way too salty and way too much Worst sauce. Sure citrus is going to make the meat tender and juicy, but I didnt like it at all. Red wine vinegar??? Apple cider vinegar would have been better. Im surprised at the great reviews. Made this for the first time and took to friends house, they were polite but we all had the same reaction. Sorry. Read More

My family loved this marinade on boneless chicken breast. I used 6 large peices and cut the recipe in half using the conversion chart. I used olive oil instead of vegetable oil and only had half the amount of soy sauce so I used 1/2 soy and 1/2 teriaki sauce and just a dash of salt. I also baked mine in the oven on 375 for 40 minutes instead of dragging out the grill:o) Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe. Read More

I have to put my two cents in on this marinade. Oh my gosh, I love it!!! I have used it on chicken, pork and beef. It not only tenderizes, but gives great flavor. A nice change from barbeque sauce. The recipe does make a large amount, but I now keep it in a bottle in the fridge to have on hand for whenever I want to marinate something. I was a bit skeptical, but after trying it, I'm sold. My husband loves it (as do I). Thanks Jill, for this fabulous recipe. I wish I could give it more stars! Read More

I scaled this down to 12 servings for three boneless chicken breasts. I used olive oil vs. vegetable oil. I always use low sodium soy sauce and I didn't have fresh parsley so I used dried. I made this in the morning and let it marinate all day. The chicken was very tender and full of flavor. This would be great for kabobs! Read More

I recently made this with boneless, skinless chicken breasts and was very pleased at the result. It makes A LOT so I refrigerated the leftover marinade to use another time soon. Due to the soy sauce, there's no way this recipe needs the salt. I left out the parsley simply because I didn't have any. I'll make this again. Read More

We used this for steak and it was AWESOME! We tried one batch exactly as the recipe stated and for the second batch, we added 1/2 bottle of Italian dressing and 1 Tbsp. liquid smoke. The steaks were delicious and very tender. This recipe is a keeper at our house! Thanks! Read More

Very good marinade as written, sensational with the addition of garlic and brown sugar. I added 4 cloves of garlic, chopped, and 2 tablespoons of brown sugar. I also opted to use the zest of one lemon instead of the lemon juice. I never use the salt and find that the soy sauce and Worcestershire sauce provide enough for our taste. This time, I used chicken thighs and let them marinate over night before putting them on the grill. I set the grill up for indirect grilling, browned the skin over the coals and then moved them over to the cooler side to finish cooking. The flavor of the marinade was down to the bone! I've used this for awhile and have since cut the oil in the recipe down to 1/2 cup and added other items in my own custom version. Read More

This is the best chicken marinade ever even my very picky daughter said "don't loose this one mom". I did not add the salt either as some reviewers suggested. The soy sauce made it salty enough. Read More
