This Sweet Soy Chicken Marinade is one of my all time favorite marinades for chicken!!
Small Ingredient List, Big Chicken Marinade Taste
With only four ingredients, this marinade is easy and fast to throw together. I like to make it the night before and let the chicken marinate until the next day so that it absorbs the most flavor. You’d think that there wouldn’t be a whole lot of flavor considering there are only 4 ingredients, but this marinade is actually full of flavor. I cannot over-exaggerate how much we love this stuff!
I love that this chicken marinade is a little more on the sweet side and that I don’t need any special ingredients.

This is a great question…I’ve never tried it that way. You should give it a try and let us know how it goes.:) If I was pan frying it I think I would add most of the marinade in with the chicken to cook to prevent it from drying out. Plus then you would have a great sauce to drizzle over it when you’re done.
