Summer is in full blast around here. And that means lots of grilling. I’m not a huge fan of red meat, so grilled chicken is always my preference. I got this chicken marinade recipe from my friend Suzanne. She used fresh ginger, and that is awesome. I don’t usually have it on hand, so I use dry, and it is still amazing.
The longer you let the chicken marinate, the better it is. If I remember right, she told me she let hers marinate for 24 hours. I usually forget to plan ahead that much, but it still turns out delicious. If you want the chicken to be absolutely awesome, make it up the night before and let it sit in the fridge for 24 hours. You won’t be disappointed. It would be perfect for the 4th of July next week. 🙂
Grilled Chicken Marinade
2 green onions, finely chopped
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup soy sauce
1-2 garlic cloves, minced
1 cup water
Ginger- 1/2″ grated fresh, or 1/2 tsp dry
4 chicken breasts
Combine all ingredients except chicken in a gallon size ziplock bag. Squish (I know, so technical) the bag till everything is well combined and the brown sugar is dissolved. Add the chicken and seal the bag. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours, but overnight is best. Grill chicken till juices run clear.
