Wednesday, January 10, 2007 Grilled Marinated Chicken

I like to use skinless chicken breasts with this marinade. It's really tasty!

4 lbs. chicken parts of your choice
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
1 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 tsp. oregano
1 tsp. basil
1 tsp. garlic salt
1/2 tsp. pepper

Place marinade with chicken in a large ziploc bag and marinate overnight. Grill chicken until it reaches 160° at the thickest part, or until white all the way through and juices run clear. If you do not have a grill, you can broil or bake the chicken in the oven.
