This tangy savory chicken recipe is a definite must try to spice up your weekly rotation of chicken! Kids love it too! Make sure you reserve some of the sauce for dipping!
2 packages of chicken breast tenderloins (about 12-14 tenderloins)
2 cups low sodium soy sauce (make sure it's low sodium, otherwise it will be too salty)
2 cups water
2/3 cup sugar
2 teaspoons onion powder
2 teaspoons ground ginger
1 large clove garlic, minced
4 scallions, minced
1/2 small lemon, squeezed
Suggested sides: steamed jasmine rice and veggies
Whisk all ingredients together to make sure the sugar, onion powder, and ground ginger dissolve into the soy sauce and water. Reserve 1 cup of the marinade to use for dipping or to pour over rice and veggies.
Put the chicken tenderloins in a bowl or in a large plastic bag. Pour the marinade (all but the 1 cup reserved) over the chicken. Move the chicken around to make sure the marinade gets all over the chicken. Set in refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
After the chicken is done marinating, cook on the grill, spooning the marinade over the chicken. Cook a couple minutes on each side til thoroughly cooked. (Make sure to watch the chicken, so that it does not burn). And Voila! here is the finished product! Enjoy!
