Soy and Garlic Marinated Chicken

    1 hour 25 min

    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.

    Something else. I have made this before and it tastes great. However I add a generous tsp of ground coriander to the marinade. I cut the chicken into strips and thrread on to soaked bamboo sticks. Great on the BBQ or under the grill.  -  28 Oct 2008


    Very easy to prepare, I used reduced sodium soy sauce though and threw in some baby spinach to wilt in the end. Very nice  -  01 Jun 2011
