There are some errors in this recipe I have contacted All Recipes but will put the correct measurements here until they can get around to getting it fixed. Everything else is the same just the amounts. 1 Bottle of Bernsteins Italian dressing 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce 1/3 Cup Soy Sauce 4 to 6 Tablespoons Brown Sugar 10 Cloves of Pressed Garlic 1 Teaspoon Dry Mustard 1 Teaspoon Ground Ginger This recipe is the best. Our family also uses this for steak. We tend to let it sit in the fridge for a few days turning it once a day to move around the seasonings. Keep a spray bottle near the grill because this flares up sometimes. Enjoy! Read More

It was pretty good. I used this to marinate both chicken and beef steak. We much preferred it with the beef. Definitely won't use it for chicken again though. Read More

Yum yum yum! This was THE BEST marinade! I marinated for a day and a half but instead of grilled I roasted the chicken in the oven..the skin came out nice a crispy with an amazing flavor! My husband even said this was the best chicken i've ever made and I cook a lot! I can't say enough how wonderful this marinade is. Read More

This recipe was awesome! Such a simple marinade with ingrediants I always have on hand. I am not a fan of ginger so I left it out and it still tasted great. I used boneless skinless chicken breasts...grilled 8 minutes on each side. They were so juicy and yummy! I ate mine with brown rice & corn on the cob. My husband ate later in the day so his were cold over salad and he said they were delicious. This recipe is a keeper! Read More

Good marinade! All the ingredients I keep on hand. I did 1/2 the recipe for 5 large chicken breasts and only needed about 1/2 bottle of dressing. Only had time to marinate for about 6 hrs but will try for overnight next time. Do be careful grilling because it does tend to burn in areas. Overall good recipe. Read More

Loved this! I halved this used a Good Seasons Italian Dressing packet added the ingredients called for here then added the liquids called for plus a 1/2 cup water then I drizzled in the oil (called for on the package) and mixed with an emmulsion blender to emulsify. After marinating I boiled a cup of the marinade and basted with it. Be sure to grill over indirect heat even then the skin may blacken but the chicken will be tender and moist. Take off the grill baste lightly one last time cover with foil and let rest 10 minutes before serving. Oh so good!! Read More

Best chicken marinade around. Sometimes I premix a batch jar it and stick it in the fridge. Then I just pour some over a couple chicken breasts before leaving for work. Easy and flavorful chicken dinner. Read More

I only marinated my chicken in this for 2 hours and it was still good. It probably would have been better if I marinated it longer.I will make it again just marinate it overnight. Read More
