Delectable Marinated Chicken Recipe
I have experimented with so many marinades for chicken using my neighbors as guinea pigs and this one has been branded by all as simply delectable, thus the title.
This wonderful recipe INSTANTLY became a favorite with Hubs and me when we took our first bite! It is very, very good. And if that weren't enough, it came off the grill looking BEAUTIFUL!! I omitted the sesame seeds and instead used about 1/2 t. sesame oil and for the teriyaki sauce and I used a product called teriyaki baste and glaze. I reserved some of the marinade before adding the chicken and Hubs used it to baste the chicken (I used skinless, boneless chicken breast halves) as it was grilling. It had perfect grill marks and looked beautifully moist. Perfect presentation! This recipe is wonderful as is, but next time I'd like to try adding some "heat" to this. I am delighted I found this recipe! Thank you!!
Made for dinner and followed directions exactly. I did use boneless chicken breasts, because I do not care for thighs. I made the marinade in the morning and it came together quickly and easily once all the ingredients were assembled. It marinated all day while I was at work, and we threw it on the grill when I got home. Served with couscous and steamed green beans. My family had been complaining about chicken again, but once they tasted this, everyone was happy, even the picky 7 year old. This will be a regular rotation at our home.
This IS delectable!! I served it to my family per the recipe (except added more garlic and used plain salt and pepper), and it was wonderful. Thanks for sharing!
This is superb! Serve with the 'Bacon Ranch Pasta Salad' from this site and envite your neighbors asking them to bring a fresh vegetable to grill!
I marinated the chicken 24 hours because the dinner arrangement had changed and I had already prepared the chicken. I thought the chicken came out kind of rubbery.
By looking at the recipe, I felt this was going to be too salty. My husband is trying to watch his salt intake. So, I left out the soy sauce and added extra teriyaki. I also substituted garlic powder for garlic salt, and ground pepper for the garlic pepper. My teriyaki already has sesame seeds in it, so I didn't add any extra. I really enjoyed this. I never thought of using molasses to a marinade. YUM! I'm making it again!
