I live in a small town; however, we have a very nice grocery store (singular) for a small town…a grocery store that is notorious for being out of certain items although being out of chicken breasts seems a bit of a stretch, even for our store.
Anyway, the store was out of chicken breasts when I shopped so I am grilling pork chops today and using my grilled chicken recipe. AND…purely by accident…this turned into some of the best, most tender meat I have ever cooked. I put the meant in the marinade on Monday morning, planning to grill that night, but Rickey Jones forgot to tell me he would not be home. I wasn’t about to cook after 4 basketball games on Tuesday night so it was Wednesday night after class before we grilled. My new suggestion would be to put the meat in the marinade and leave it for 2-3 days. Every time you open the fridge, turn the bag over.
¼ Cup Soy Sauce
4 Teaspoons Oil (I use olive.)
4 Tablespoons Honey
3 Slices Ginger Root (Today, I used ginger powder, but I prefer the root.)
2 Cloves Garlic, minced
4 Chicken Breasts
1. Mix all ingredients together. Today, I mixed in a bowl and then heated less than 30 seconds in the microwave so that it combined well. Pour into a bag. I have also just mixed it all in a bag.
2. Put chicken into the bag and allow to set for the entire day or overnight. I usually leave on my counter for the first couple of hours and turn the bag often.
3. Grill normally. If you want to save the sauce, put in sauce pan and boil for a couple of minutes. If you really like the sauce, you could always double the recipe.
