Marinating meat can make it more flavorful and also tenderize it. Chicken thighs are a good choice for marinating because they taste delicious grilled or on shish kabobs. You can vary the ingredients of any marinade depending on your taste. Ingredients like soy sauce, garlic and balsamic vinegar will create a savory marinade that will be tasty on juicy chicken thighs. You can marinade meat from 30 minutes to 24 hours and you will end up with a deletable meal.

Things You'll Need


Whisk soy sauce, minced garlic, balsamic vinegar, lemon juice, sugar, ginger, olive oil and salt and pepper in a medium-sized mixing bowl. Whisk until sugar has dissolved and all the ingredients have formed together into a sauce.

Place the chicken thighs in a glass or tin pan. Pour the mixture over the thighs so that each get saturated with the marinade. Cover with plastic and put in the refrigerator for a few hours or over night. The longer the meat marinades the tastier it will be.

Take the thighs out of the pan and put them on the grill, or cut them into pieces and put on a skewer with a variety of vegetable such as onions, peppers and tomatoes. Brush the thighs with marinade after turning them on the grill. You can serve the skewers with rice.
