Grilled Chicken with Soy Marinade


This is a simple way to dress up grilled chicken. Ingredients – equal parts soy sauce, sugar and Italian dressing. I used about 1/2 cup each.

Mix up the marinade ingredients and pour it over boneless chicken breasts. I put the chicken in a ziplock bag. You could marinate the chicken the night before you plan to cook them, or the morning before your dinner or if you’re like me, about 30 minutes before they hit the grill. Just be sure to put them in the fridge while they’re waiting for grill time.

Yes, the chicken breast in the middle is a little pale. My grill doesn’t cook even, but it does cook.

That’s it! Easy and fast. Leftovers pack up the next day as part of a salad, wrapped in a tortilla with lettuce, on a roll for a sandwich etc. I had a salad at Chic-fil-A the other day that would be easy to create at home with this chicken. (I know this blog is about eating at home, but that doesn’t mean you can never eat out!) The Chic-fil-A salad had grilled chicken, lettuce, apples, grapes, mandarin oranges, cran-raisins and a berry vinaigrette dressing. Yum! I may have to make that for dinner sometime soon!

  1. Hi! I just discovored your blog through other blogs, and you have a great blog here! Lots and lots of yummy things. I’ve been sitting here for awhile looking at all of your posts. I had to leave a comment on this one because it looks do delish! I absolutely loved grilled chicken, and I make almost the same thing. I use soy sauce, italian dressing, and ground ginger. Woah, it’s SO good! I just recently started adding the ginger, and it makes it scrumptious. I see Kroger brand in some of your photos, so I was wondering where you’re from since I shop there as well. I live in McKinney, Texas which is about 30 miles north of Dallas. Anyway, sorry for writing so much..just wanted to let you know that I’m enjoying all of your recipes! :o)

  2. Sugar… really? Never would have thought to use sugar. Too simple not to try. And it is grilling season for sure!

    This is such a great marinade. I add a tablespoon of minced garlic in with my marinade. I only marinaded for a half-hour and it had great flavor. Making again tonight and going to aim to let marinade for about 2-3 hours. I served over steamed rice and the family thought it tasted like teriyaki chicken. Thx Tiffany for such a great and easy recipe! I love this site 🙂
