DIRECTIONS

  • Whisk together the marinade ingredients in a small bowl or 1 pint liquid measuring cup.
  • On a cutting board cut the chicken breasts length wise in half, if the they are relatively large, & trim off all the excess fat.
  • In a container (e.g. Tupperware, glassware) that can be sealed with a lid & has sufficient capacity, place some of the chicken in a layer at the bottom & pour some of marinade evenly over the layer. Repeat with the rest of the chicken & marinade. *A large & sturdy Ziploc bag can be used for this step as well.
  • Seal the container (or plastic bag) & shake until all of the chicken is completely coated in marinade.
  • Let marinate in the refrigerator overnight or freeze for up to 2 weeks*. *If freezing thaw in the refrigerator overnight, under cold, running water, or in the microwave at 30 percent power for 1 minute at a time before continuing on to the next step.
  • Bake in a 375 degrees F preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes, or until cooked through. You can also cook the chicken on a hot grill for about 4 minutes per side, or until cooked through.
