This is an incredibly simple and amazing meal that we eat at least once every two weeks during grilling season. It’s perfect for busy weeknights since you can mix the marinade in the morning and throw in the chicken then simple come home and grill.
The soy, sugar and ketchup combine to bring a sweet and savory flavor to the chicken. This recipe is also great because it has simple ingredients that most people already have in their pantry.
To make this healthier, substitute Splenda for the sugar. When I’ve done this, we haven’t been able to tell the difference. If you aren’t a big fan of chicken, you can switch out the chicken for thinly sliced beef or pork for equally delicious results.
1 1/2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken tenderloins
2/3 cup soy sauce
1/3 cup white sugar or Splenda
2 Tbsp. ketchup
1/2 tsp. ginger
1/4 tsp. onion powder
Combine all ingredients in a resealable bag and marinate for at least 30 minutes (I marinate it all day). Soak wooden skewers in water for 30 minutes so that they don’t burn while grilling. Thread the chicken on the skewers and grill until juices run clear.
