Another thing, I don't know about you, but when I grill my chicken, it tends to get a bit harder to chew. This chicken was SO soft to eat, it almost melted in my mouth. Also, I wasn't sure I was going to make this tonight until a bit later in the day so my chicken only marinated for 4 hours and it was FABULOUS! One thing that might have made a difference though is that I cut my chicken into strips before I marinated it. I don't know if this is true or not, but since I didn't have the full 6 hours or overnight to marinate it, I thought it might move a little faster if it didn't have to go through so much chicken. Maybe I'm a dork though, who knows?
7 Up Chicken Marinade
1 can 7Up (or sprite) [I used a 20 oz bottle of 7Up]
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup canola oil
1 Tb horseradish sauce
1 tsp minced garlic
6 boneless skinless chicken breasts
Blend all ingredients and add chicken. ( I usually do this in a big zip loc bag) Let marinate over night or at least 6 hours, in the fridge.
