Asian Marinade

"A friend had suggested ages ago, after marinading and immediately before grilling or cooking, to place 1 small spring of rosemary on top each piece of meat. The Asian-rosemary infused flavor is delicious."

  1. This is a quick and simple marinade that adds so much flavour it's unbelievable. It has simple clean taste that goes so well on chicken. I marinaded overnight and made chicken thighs so flavourful and moist. We use this marinade probably once a week and everyone still loves it!!
  2. Delicious! I marinated the chicken breasts for about 5 hours, then grilled. They smelled amazing and I couldn't wait to eat. We had unexpected company and had to put dinner on hold for 3 hours. We covered the chicken with foil and kept it warm in the oven. I was sure it had dried out, but it was still juicy and flavorful. I'm looking forward to making this recipe again and eating right off the grill. Thanks for posting!
  3. This marinade is TASTY and just perfect. I used it to marinate chicken tenderloins for 60 minutes, maybe less and grilled 'em up. Cooled and served with Recipe #300403. It made for a perfect light dinner on a hot summer night. Thanks gailanng!
  4. We really enjoyed this marinade, the meat was barbecued and was tender, juicy and with a great tangy flavor, Will definately be using this again, thanks so much for posting this. Its so quick and simple.
  5. This is a wonderful marinade. I used soy sauce with reduced-sodium. I let the steak in the marinade for at least 4 hours. Great taste. Thanks gailanng :) Made for Holiday tag game


  1. I added a couple tablespoons of oyster sauce. The sugar caramelized the meat. I just mixed it in with rice a roni fried rice and garnished with scallions. I chopped up the chicken and it was a delicious easy meal.
