Step 1

Try a subtly different soy sauce:

Step 2

Try this easy to make 3-step soy chicken marinade recipe for a subtly different yet distinctively delicious soy sauce!

Step 3

Preheat the oven to 180°C/160° Fan, 350°F, Gas 4 while you combine the soy sauce, Lyle's Golden Syrup, sesame oil, ginger and a generous amount of black pepper in a shallow non-metallic dish. Add the chicken and leave to marinate for a minimum of 2 hours (or overnight, if you can wait), turning from time to time. Cover and chill.

Step 4

Drain the chicken and keep the marinade. Pop it on a baking tray lined with parchment paper and cook for 20-25 minutes - or until golden brown and cooked through. Baste halfway through with the leftover marinade.

Step 5

Transfer to a dish and serve. It's really that simple.

Pro tip

We recommend using light or all-purpose soy sauce for this soy chicken marinade recipe, as opposed to dark soy sauce or sweet soy sauce.

Step 6

Now sit back and savour that subtle syrup twist of your soy chicken marinade!

Pro tip

Once cooked, your soy chicken marinade will last up to 5 days in the fridge. You can also freeze your marinade, but bear in mind that it may thin out a bit if frozen.
