I hope everyone has had a nice weekend! We had a really good one--lots of family time and my husband and I got to see a movie! Oh, and we got a Nintendo Wii, so things were good at the Knightly house this weekend. :)
Sorry for the late post, I was distracted by the Wii most of the day. This way I can do the recipe and review all in one! This chicken marinade is one I use all the time. Last summer I made it whenever we'd have someone over for dinner. It's super easy, and the ingredients are ones I always have on hand. The name comes from the originator of the recipe, my high school best friend's art teacher, Mr. Saito. Feel free to call it whatever you want.
1/2 c. oil
1/3 c. lemon juice
1/4 c. soy sauce
1 or 2 crushed garlic cloves
1 tsp. ground ginger
salt and pepper
Mix and pour over chicken. Let marinate an hour, flipping chicken after 30 minutes. Grill over medium heat, about 7 minutes per side.
I've used that amount of marinade for as many as eight chicken breasts, so it makes a good amount of marinade. I also usually let it marinate longer than an hour. Our side dishes tonight weren't anything fancy...grilled corn on the cob and a Suddenly Salad pasta salad. My friend Laura sent me a recipe for an orzo pasta salad that sounds fantastic, but I ran out of time to make it. Darn Wii!! ;)
The chicken was good, as always. I could eat this several nights a week, it's one of my favorites.
