Ginger Chicken

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Hey Jude

This is another great, do-ahead, type recipe that's so 'after-work friendly'. I throw this together in the morning, let it marinate all day and then toss it on the grill when I get home. Cook the rice while the chicken's on the grill and you have dinner in about 45 minutes. Prep time doesn't include marinating time since you have a choice of quick or longer marinating.

Fabulous marinade ! I tried this (using brown sugar instead of molasses) with two chicken breasts that I marinated nearly 12 hours, then grilled on the stovetop in a dry non-stick skillet. Requested by husband to repeat soon . . . Thanks for posting !

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine vermouth, soy sauce, molasses or brown sugar, pepper and ginger.
  2. Place chicken in a food-grade plastic bag; add marinade, close bag and turn to coat chicken well; marinate at room temp for 30-45 minutes or in fridge 3-4 hours (I let it go all day, about 8-9 hours), turning bag now and then.
  3. Drain chicken, reserving marinade.
  4. Grill over hot coals, turning as needed to cook evenly and prevent burning; baste with marinade occasionally but let it cook well after basting since raw chicken was in it.
  5. Grill for about 45 minutes then serve hot over steamed rice.
