Marinated Grilled Chicken
If you are looking to add a little bit of delicious flavor to your grilled chicken, a marinade is an excellent way to do that. This marinade gives the chicken a lot of flavor from ingredients such as soy sauce, garlic powder, brown sugar, fresh thyme, and lemon juice. You will probably have most of these ingredients on hand already. You will want to marinate the chicken for at least 8 hours for the best flavor. Once the chicken is grilled you can serve it as is or you can slice it and use it in salad or wraps. Enjoy.
