  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium high heat and lightly oil the grate.
  3. Grill chicken over medium high heat for 10 to 15 minutes per side, or until internal temperature reaches 180 degrees F (80 degrees C). Discard any remaining marinade.

I just put the soy and garlic in a Ziploc bag and thought it needed something more so I added 1/2 cup canola oil, 2 tablespoons of Worcestershire, and 2 tablespoons of Sherry. I baked it in the oven because the weather was bad. I just poured the marinade over the chicken and turned the chicken every 15 minutes to 'baste'. The chicken was full of flavor.

Not to fray from this recipe, but it tastes really good if you add a tbl of brown sugar and minced ginger. Awesome!



Delicious recipe!! I took some advice from other reviewers and I added 1 tbsp of brown sugar, 1/4 c of canola oil and some ginger seasoning (I will use fresh next time, I just didn't have any on hand). I baked in the oven at 350 for 30 minutes (turned it half way through) came out perfect!
