  • 2 Tbsp soy sauce

  • 1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 ½ tsp minced garlic or 1 tsp garlic powder

Ingredients:

  • 4 ( 4 oz.) boneless, skinless chicken (I use thinly sliced chicken breasts)

Directions:

  1. In a ziplock bag combine all marinate ingredients and chicken breasts. Close bag and flip around until all ingredients are incorporated. Refrigerate for 2-4 hours.
