Soy and Garlic Marinated Chicken

This is the easiest marinade I have ever used, and one of the most popular with my family. This recipe also works well with any cut of chicken–thighs, legs, etc.

Original recipe makes 4 servings


4 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup soy sauce
4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts


  1. In a large, nonporous bowl, combine the garlic and the soy sauce. Add the chicken and turn to coat well. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for at least an hour.
  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.
