This is one of my basic marinades for all types of meat, poulty & even fish. I also use it to make teriyaki chicken wings which are a favorite at gatherings. I bake 2-3 pounds of wings seasoning them with salt, pepper & a little melted butter. Bake at 350 until done & brown. Then throw them into a crock pot on low with this marinade poured over them. Finger licking good!


I changed the recipe to have a lot more ginger. One tablespoon of ground ginger. It smelled really strong but the ginger cooked off. Made an excellent marinade. Can't wait to try it again. -Chris


Good, not great. I somewhat halved the recipe for four large chicken breasts, bonein, using these measurements: 1/2c soy, 1/2c water, 2T brown sugar, 1/4t ginger, 1/2t garlic, 2T onion,, 2T sherry. I marinated them for a few hours then baked in the marinade (what used to be) skin side up. Covered it in foil for 45 minutes, uncovered last 15. No one gave compliments, but they didn't complain (as usual) either. :/ :) The trick to add water is a good one. Adding water you get the flavor without the toughness it can cause. Oh, after baking, I thickened the strained pan drippings with 2T cornstarch.
