This is the best marinade! It is super simple and lots of flavor. We usually let it set overnight. I have also used this for whole chickens, cornish game hens and pork. I have added a little fresh garlic for an added flavor. ENJOY!

  1. In a medium sauce pans heat the juice, brown sugar and soy sauce. Remove from heat just before it boils. Let it cool a 5-10 minutes.
  2. Place chicken in a bowl or baggie and cover with marinade and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  3. Remove chicken for marinade and cook. Do not rinse. We have grilled, baked and used our "Set it & forget it.".

Love it, love it, love it! So simple, yet delicious. I subbed in 2 Tbs of honey for the brown sugar. I grilled the chicken after marinating several hours, then at the last moment before it came off the grill, I basted it with a little reserved pineapple juice and a squirt of honey. Made a lovely glaze. This marinade recipe is a regular at my house!

We really liked it we marinated it for about 3hours then grilled it. Thank you we will make again.

This is the best teriyaki chicken I have made. I halved the sugar in it. We marinated the tenders for 5 hours, and it wasn't too sweet, and yielded a subtle, but yummy taste. If you marinate in a ziplock bag, half the amount of marinade could be used.
