Teriyaki Chicken Marinade

I can’t believe Labor Day has come and gone….we spent the weekend squeezing in every last bit of summer at the grill. Although the weather should hold for some continued grilling here and there throughout September & October, once the kids go to school and the temps start to drop we’ll be turning back to the quick & easy in the kitchen & even pulling out the crock pot more than we will be grilling. This weekend we shared one of our favorite Teriyaki Chicken Marinades with friends. While the kids played basketball & swam, the adults enjoyed some good food, a lot of laughs & my Lemonade Martinis. Everyone pitched in & brought food which always makes for the best picnic!   My friend Micha brought some amazing appetizers that filled us all so much we almost didn’t need dinner. My friend Kristina brought a pasta salad a tray of cookies & Amy brought a big tossed salad; the perfect combo with grilled chicken. We also had a corn salsa salad, watermelon & mint chocolate brownies and I’m full just thinking about it…  At the end of the evening, it was a starry night with a nip of fall in the evening air that was filled with good people & good memories. We will miss summer 2014, but are excited to see what the fall has in store for us…


Teriyaki Chicken Marinade by Jodie Fitz

 10 oz. low sodium teriyaki marinade and sauce (Kikkoman brand)

6 oz. pineapple juice

1 large clove of garlic

¼ cup Vidalia onion, finely chopped

1 Tablespoon fresh ground ginger root*

1 teaspoon onion powder

½ teaspoon garlic powder

½ teaspoon white pepper

 Place approximately 4 – 5 pounds of chicken prepped the way you like it in a gallon sized Ziploc freezer bag. I typically either slice my chicken in half lengthwise and pound it or cut it into strips.

 Mix the teriyaki, pineapple juice, Vidalia onion, onion powder, garlic powder and white pepper together. I typically add the clove of garlic with a garlic press and crush it. I then add the fresh ginger root by peeling the outer layer & grating it on a mini grater. Mix all of the marinade ingredients together and pour it on top of the chicken and seal the bag. Move the marinade and chicken around to make sure the marinade is in between all of the chicken pieces and let it set for at least 3 hours before cooking. I often flip the bag during the marinating process.  [googleplusauthor]
