My old friend, Tif, shared this one. Out of all of the marinade recipes I regularly use, this one is probably my favorite–especially on the grill! It is delicious on chicken, and I hope to one day try it on shrimp.
This is a great way to get a head start on a meal by dividing up meal-sized amounts of chicken and putting them in freezer bags, then pouring this marinade into the bag before sticking them in the freezer. When you pull the meat out to thaw, it will marinate at the same time. Round the meal out with some rice and broccoli, and you’ve got a meal!
¼ c. brown sugar, packed
¼ c. soy sauce
2 T. lemon juice
1 T. oil
¼ t. ground ginger
1 clove garlic, minced (Once again, I generally add two…or four.)
2-3 lbs. chicken
