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.".

For the people out there Marinating it for hours,,, Don't ! The acids in the orange juice and pineapple juice will actually start to cook your chicken after about 40 minutes,, which is the maximum I would ever go.

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!

From my personal experience. This recipe is not good at all. i thought it tasted like you just marinaded the chicken in just soy sauce.. kinda had a bitter taste. Like i said this is personal experiance, not speaking on behalf of everyone else.... I just did not care for this AT ALL
