  1. 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.
  2. 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.


<img src=> <br> <br>I am a single mother of a very head strong teenage daughter. I have always loved to cook. I find cooking is like a good tonic that makes all my worries and stress melt away. I have been using this sight for about two years now, and have found some awesome recipes. <br> <br>If I had to list my all time favorite type of food, it would have to be my moms cooking. That down home cooking from the heart that just warms you to your soul.That special dish that only mom can make that has everyone sitting around the table when they are done, patting stomachs and groaning their appreciation of a meal that satisfies all your senses. I like to think I take after her in the kitchen. <br> <br>At home and work,friends and co-workers have nicknamed me Ms. Betty Crocker Jr. I kind of like that title. They all seem to like my cooking and it makes me feel great to be able to cook something that puts a smile on their faces. <br> <br>I have turned more then a few people onto recipezaar. My fellow co-workers come to me when they need a recipe for a dish and I go right to recipezaar and with a few clicks of the mouse I give them the best recipe they could ever find. Recipezaar is a gold mine in itself. A little piece of heaven in my eyes.
