Orange Soya Sauce Marinated Chicken

This chicken had terrific flavor. I added a little fresh grated ginger (maybe 1/4 tsp?), blk pepper and about 1 tsp garlic powder (didn't have fresh). I don't measure seasonings very well, just sorta eyeball it. I marinaded this for about four hours, using boneless, skinless breasts. I put this in a glass dish with about 1/2 the marinade sauce and baked at 400 deg F for about 30 min (int temp 180 deg). This came out SUPER tender and juicy. I will definitely make this again, and probably try it with pork chops or tenderloin. The ginger really added a nice flavor. Thanks for the suggestions!

I am seldom moved to review a recipe, but this one was not good at all. The soy sauce completely overwhelmed all taste of orange. My family wouldn't finish it, and they aren't terribly picky.

This marinade is amazing! I've made a few times with both chicken and pork tenderloin. Two hours just isn't enough time to marinate the meat for, overnight is best but from breakfast will do. I've even served this to guests with rave reviews. Thanks for the great recipe.

Very tasty, though changed it. I used 1/2 cup un-diluted frozen orange juice concentrate, and 1 can of beef stock. I then added my mined garlic, and a little crushed ginger. I marinated chicken in it all day, and then baked it in the oven, in the marinade. Served it over rice. Great and so easy! :)

This is a great basic recipe, however I thinnk you need to jazz it up a little. I added chopped ginger and a few tablesppons of honey to make it more glazey, otherwise its a little runny. I think I would also marinade overnight (I only did 5 hours and could not taste the flavor all the way through.) I also would grate some orange peel in next time. Would be great on wings/drumsticks. We just grilled on bbq.

This was a really delicious marinade. I made a few changes by adding some ground ginger (1/2 tsp) as well as a couple tablespoons of vegetable oil. I marinated the chicken overnight and then broiled it for 20 minutes, flipping it at 10 minutes and brushing some of the marinade on it. I dumped the remaining marinade into a pot and boiled it for a little while until it reduced and then spooned a little over the chicken. I served the chicken with brown rice and garnished with some chopped green onions. Very good! I'll definitely be adding this to the rotation.

This recipe is really good especially when you add ground black pepper into it!

Awesome flavor. I did marinate overnight, and added honey as suggested in another review. Also tried with pork chops and turned out very tasty! Thanks for the recipe!
