Oh this marinade is so so good! This is some of the best chicken I've made in a while. It is phenomenal! I saw this marinade on Allrecipes and just tweaked a couple things for our tastes. The marinade has the perfect combination of savory, salty, sweet, and spice. This is definitely a new family favorite! If you like this recipe you should also try our Korean Barbecue Beef Kabobs.
This makes enough for 2 lbs. chicken.
1 cup low sodium soy sauce
1/4 cup white sugar
3/4 cup water
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. ground ginger
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
1 Tbsp. + 1 tsp. hot chile paste (more or less depending on how spicy you like it)
Whisk together all ingredients and marinate chicken in refrigerator. We made 1 1/2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken thighs and they marinated for about 90 minutes.
