Grilled Chicken with Garlic Soy Marinade

This tender chicken is as delicious as it is easy to prepare. It is similar to our favorite grilled chicken and is a terrific recipe for cooking in bulk for the freezer. The extra flavor from marinating and grilling will enhance any casseroles, skillet meals, or soups that you add the chicken to.

This is a good recipe for bulk cooking chicken for the freezer, so if your supply is low, plan to double or triple this recipe to restock. If you don’t want to use the grill, another option is to bake the chicken at 350ºF for about 45 minutes or until temperature reaches 165ºF.
