Here’s a super easy way to give chicken full-on flavor – Ginger Soy Grilled Chicken Recipe. Just use tasty soy sauce and vibrant fresh ginger in a quick marinade. Did I mention you only need 3 ingredients to make this?! A quick turn on the grill, and dinner is ready! The chicken is a bit salty due to the soy sauce, so be sure to serve it with plain rice to balance the flavors.


  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1 inch fresh ginger, peeled and minced
  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • sesame seeds, optional, for garnish


  1. In a small bowl, add soy sauce and ginger and whisk to combine. Set aside 1/2 the marinade in a small bowl (cover until ready to use).
  2. Marinate chicken in 1/2 the marinade for 30 minutes to one hour. Note: I like to take a large ziplock bag and roll the sides down. I’ll put the bag in a large bowl (see photos above), add the chicken, and pour the marinade over the chicken breasts. Then, I seal the bag and use my fingers to move the chicken to make sure they’re covered all around by the marinade.
  3. Pre-heat grill. Grill chicken, brushing with reserved marinade occasionally, until cooked through, about 6-8 minutes per side, depending on grill type and heat level.
  4. Serve with rice and vegetable of choice (I liked steamed broccoli or grilled zucchini) and sprinkle with sesame seeds, if using. Enjoy!


Prep time: about 5 minutes to mix and 30 minutes – 1 hour to marinate, depending on how patient you’re feeling.
