1 Fat, 3 1/2 Very Lean Meat


1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
3 tbsp white wine , dry
2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
2 tbsp vegetable oil
3/4 tsp dry italian seasoning
1 tsp fresh ginger root , grated
1 medium garlic cloves , crushed
1/4 tsp onion powder
1 pinch black pepper
8 boneless skinless chicken breasts , cut into strips*** (see note below)

1 In a large, resealable plastic bag, combine the soy sauce, wine, lemon juice, oil, Italian-style seasoning, ginger, garlic, onion powder, and ground black pepper.
2 Place chicken in the bag. Seal, allowing it to marinate in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours, or overnight.
3 Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat.
4 Thread the chicken onto skewers, and set aside.
5 Pour marinade into a small saucepan, and bring to a boil over high heat.
6 Lightly oil the grill grate. Cook chicken on the prepared grill for approximately 8 minutes per side, basting with the sauce several times. Chicken is done when juices run clear.

Additional Information
To reduce burning, soak skewers in warm water for 15 minutes prior to use

*** We didn't have skewers and no one at my house wanted to mess with them anyway. So I marinaded 3 half boneless, skinless chicken breasts and grilled them like that. They were perfectly moist and tender like that and I'll definitely do it again. Plus it was a lot easier than threading strips of chicken would have been.
