Soy Garlic Chicken Marinade for Grilling
- Prep Time: 5 minutes
- BBQ Time: 1 hour 40 minutes
- Cook Time: 4 hours
- Total Time: 5 hours 45 minutes
- Yield: Enough Marinade for 8 Chicken Thigh pieces
The best ever Soy Garlic Marinade Chicken for a BBQ. It's finger linkin good and you will want to go for seconds. Mix together, and marinade and you're good to go.
- 3 Tbsp olive oil
- 4 Tbsp superior dark soy sauce
- 1 Tbsp teriyaki marinade and sauce
- 2 Tbsp concentrated bottled lemon juice
- 6 Tbsp maple syrup
- 3 heaped teaspoons minced garlic – store-bought
- 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
- 1 tsp salt
- 8 chicken thighs
Mix all ingredients for the marinade together in a large bowl and transfer to a plastic Ziploc bag.
Add defrosted chicken thighs into the bag. Seal the bag and then squish it to ensure that all pieces are nicely covered.
Leave the chicken pieces for at least 4-5 hours in the marinade. You can leave it in the fridge or as I did on the countertop.
When you pass the ziplock bag, give it a squeeze to move the chicken pieces around in the marinade to ensure the sauce cover the pieces nicely.
Now you can decide if you prefer to BBQ or bake it in the oven.
We placed this on the BBQ and did a very slow roast and basted with the sauce and it came out absolutely perfect and so juicy and tasty.
If you prefer to do it in the oven, I would suggest leaving it uncovered and bake it at 450F / 235C for ±¾-1 hour, or until cooked through. As we BBQ’d you have to make sure of the time, as this is a guestimate.
In the oven, I would suggest leaving it skin side up to get it nicely browned and continue to baste it with the marinade so that it does not dry out.
Bake until done and you have crispy skin. If not crisp enough to your liking, turn on the top element and broil it for more crispness.

Hi Julie. Thanks for going to try this out. We tend to make up stuff as you say from ingredients we have. Sometimes it does work like this one, but we have also had some that did not turn out so good. Hope you will enjoy this one.
