This a Cooking Light recipe that I have been using again and again and again since the beginning of the Summer - the chicken once marinated is very moist and tasty. And the leftover chicken is wonderful in a salad the next day!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine first 6 ingredients in a large ziploc plastic bag, add chicken. Seal and marinate in refrigerator for 4 hours or overnight, turning ocacsionnally.
  2. Prepare grill.
  3. Remove chicken from bag, reserving marinade. Place marinade in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, cook 1 minute.

Delicious, moist and tender chicken! I made the marinade as directed and allowed the chicken pieces to set in the marinate for the day. I set the oven to 375 degrees F and cooked the chicken in the oven, basting occasionally, for about 40 minutes. Very flavorful and I will make this again! Thank you, Redsie!

Wow! Loads of flavor packed into this chicken. My DS and DD told me I can make this for them any day of the week, so I am passing the compliment on to you Redsie! Great chicken!

I too have been making this Cooking Light recipe for several years now, it's quick, easy, healthy and tastes great! I served it with Baby Bok Choy with Oyster Sauce and steamed jasmine rice.
