This is a great chicken marinade! Allow chicken to marinate for no longer than 4 hours, because the lemon juice will begin to cook the chicken. When grilled, the chicken turns a beautiful caramel color, which makes great presentation. This is my fiance's favorite chicken.

As the creator of this recipe, it is very important to note that this recipe calls for low sodium soy sauce. Don't even bother attempting this if you are using regular soy sauce, it will be too salty. Update 7/2/08: I do not recommend making this recipe on the stove top. The marinade can't cook off enough when trapped in a skillet...stick to the grill!

Excellent flavor. I made this on Friday during a snow storm and rather than grill outside (hee-hee), I marinated the chicken for 2 hours, then added everything, marinade and all, to a baking dish, covered with aluminum foil and baked in a preheated 350 degree oven for 30 minutes. Half-way through I used a turkey baster to coat chicken and prevent from drying. After 30 minutes, I removed foil for 5 minutes to crisp top. It came out perfect. Thank you!

Very nice recipe with great flavor. Made the first time and it was wonderful. Made it the second time with fresh squeezed orange juice as I was out of lemon juice. Even better!!!
