  1. Whisk lemon-lime soda, olive oil, soy sauce, and garlic powder in a bowl and pour into a resealable plastic bag. Add chicken breasts, coat with the marinade, squeeze out excess air, and seal the bag. Marinate in the refrigerator overnight.
  2. Preheat grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate.
  3. Remove chicken from marinade and discard used marinade. Cook chicken breasts on preheated grill until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, 7 to 8 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

I tried this recipe today: the chicken came out very moist but not enough flavor and very salty,if I was to make it again I will add other spices and less soy sauce.

This was spot on!!! It produced the juciest grilled chicken I've made in a very long time!!!

THIS IS SPECTACULAR!!!!! I have tried this recipe several times, I haven't used it in a while and was so excited to find it again! Its a simple marinade that is extremely flavorful, and it goes...

I used ginger ale instead of lemon lime soda since that's what I had. Also I baked it at 400F for about 45 min. It came out moist and delicious!!

great great great, add as the other people said, some mustard (about a tablespoon)and great in the grill,not for the frying pan.

Great Chicken Marinade!!! I only had to marinade the chicken for two hours and grilled it for 10 minutes

Quite good. Marinaded overnight. Chunked up my chicken for kabobs. Upped garlic powder. When threading kabobs I cut up zucchini, summer squash, onions and mushrooms. Poured some reserved marinad...

Great recipe!

I will make again
