Hi, Whole Milk. This recipe is for kebabs, but I've used the marinade on chicken legs and thighs, too, so you don't have to make kebabs if you just want chicken. Enjoy

Grilled Lemon Chicken Kebabs

2 large garlic cloves, peeled and smashed
1/3 cup olive oil
1/4 cup soy sauce
3 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
2 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into 2-inch pieces
2 medium red, yellow or green bell peppers, or a combination, cut into 2-inch pieces
1 medium onion, peeled, cut into wedges, and separated into pieces

In a shallow glass or ceramic bowl, combine garlic, oil, soy sauce, lemon juice, vinegar and Worcestershire. Add chicken and vegetables, stirring to coat. Cover and refrigerate one hour, stirring occasionally. Meanwhile, soak 6 bamboo skewers in water for 20 minutes. Alternately thread peppers, onion and chicken pieces onto skewers. Broil or grill kebabs, brushing well with remaining marinade, 5 minutes on each side.

I think soy sauce really gives alot to a marinade.
If I am just making BBQ chicken with BBQ sauce, I still marinate it...
I just mix Italian salad dressing and soy sauce. Can't tell you measurements, I just pour.
Not that there's anything wrong with that.....

Start with a little olive oil, add some salt, pepper, garlic, parsley, basil. Then zest a lime and add that, along with the lime juice. Marinate chicke breast fillets for a few hours then cook on a hot grill.

And like suziq, I don't measure, so good luck

Yes Suzzi, Italian dressing, indeed does an amasing job for grilled chicken.
You are what you eat.
