Ingredients

    soy sauce
  • 1/4 c

    toasted sesame oil

    juice and scrapings from a 1 inch pc. of ginger root, or about 1/4 tsp. ginger from jar

How to Make Lemon Chicken (A Really Good Marinade)

Step-by-Step

  1. Mix all liquid ingredients in a gallon zip top bag. If you want, reserve some liquid for basting. Otherwise, proceed to next step.
  2. Add chicken pieces. Let marinate one hour in the refrigerator. Note: The longer it marinates the stronger the flavor.
  3. Broil or grill chicken until cooked through. You can also bake this dish.
  4. I also use strips of marinated chicken for kabobs; just thread on skewers with mushrooms, green peppers, pineapple chunks, - whatever floats your boat!
  5. To serve: Place on a serving platter, lined with lettuce leaves and a few slices of lemon. Sprinkle sesame seeds on top. It makes an impressive looking dish.
  6. Be careful if broiling - make sure your chicken doesn't get too dry. This is when I would reserve some marinade and baste the chicken pieces while cooking.
