This is a light tasting grilling marinaide for chicken legs (good on all meat) that my neighbor Keith gave me.It does not overpower the taste of the meat like most sauces do.I grill all summer long with this recipe.


  1. Combine all ingredients in large bowl,mix until sugar is dissolved.
  2. Marinate meat for about an hour, to even overnight(I use a gallon zip- lock bag).
  3. Grill meat on barbeque pit till done.

We really, really liked this a lot!!! I used it on chicken beast tenders and grilled them. It made the chicken so moist and it was so light. We also brushed it on some hamburgers we were grilling and it was fabulous on the burgers. We will be using this alot. Thank you soooo much for sharing this.

We really liked this marinade & I know I will use it again this summer as we grill. I used it on boneless chicken breasts so didn't need as much marinade so reduced the recipe by half & completely omitted the water. I also used a diet sprite as that was what I had. I boned the chicken, cut it into strips, and placed it into a bag with the marinade for 6 hours. I then threaded the meat onto skewers and grilled on a foreman grill for less than 10 minutes. The chicken was so moist and had a light flavor. You can taste the soy, but it isn't asian like in flavor. It was fast, easy, & delicious! Made for Spring '09 Pick A Chef.
