The Best Barbequed Chicken Ever

Growing up, we basically had one recipe for chicken on the BBQ, but it was a good one. Everybody always asked us for the recipe! Don't be turned off by the lemon-lime carbonated beverage (Sprite or 7-up do nicely). Carbonation tenderizes the meat and makes it so good! We used the Marinade Master for twenty minutes, but without one, simple marinade in the fridge for at least an hour, or even overnight.

The Best Barbequed Chicken Ever
  • 12 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 1 cup vegetable oil (I REDUCE THIS TO 1/2 CUP)
  • 2 cups lemon-lime flavored carbonated beverage
  • 1 cup soy sauce
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
  1. To Make Marinade: In a medium bowl combine the oil, lemon-lime beverage, soy sauce and garlic powder. Stir thoroughly until you have a good mixture.
  2. Put chicken and marinate together in a plastic container and marinate in the refrigerator for 12 to 18 hours (6 to 9 hours if using skinless, boneless chicken breasts) before barbequing.
  3. Barbeque slowly - don't overcook. Turn frequently, basting with marinade with each turn. Cook until meat is no longer pink in the center and juices run clear. Discard any remaining marinade after use.
Here are the delicious results:
