7-UP Chicken Marinade

SO good!! This is a marinade recipe for grilled chicken, meaning I've never baked it or cooked it in a skillet. I suppose you could, I've just never tried it. Besides, the grill brings out the flavors so well & makes those caramelized dark bits on the outside that I just couldn't do without!

You can marinate the chicken up to 24 hours in advance. I'd suggest marinating for as long as you can before you grill it to be sure the flavor is saturated.

7-UP Chicken Marinade

1 can 7-UP (or Sprite)
1 cup soy sauce
1 tsp garlic powder or minced garlic
6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

Place chicken pieces in a zip-top bag that is resting in a large bowl. Pour in marinade ingredients. Firmly seal the zip-top bag & store in the refrigerator until you're ready to use it.

NOTE: The soda will fizz up quite a bit, so pour it in slowly & hold the bag firmly. I put the zip-top bag in a bowl first before starting this recipe & leave it in there while the chicken is marinating, just in case of leaks.

Soak the chicken in the marinade for up to 24 hours before grilling.

Grill boneless skinless breasts on a medium grill for 6-8 minutes per side.

You can also use chicken tenderloins for this recipe.

We serve it with a salad, corn on the cob & garlic bread. Enjoy!

I just bought chicken at the store tonight; might just try this (with ginger ale, since it's all I've got) for tomorrow night's dinner ... :)
