    I got this recipe from a Filipino lady who went to our church.

    1 Cup of good Soy Sauce
    2-3 lemons
    4-5 cloves garlic
    1/2 cup of olive oil (not extra virgin and you could sub canola or veg oil)
    1 tsp. hot chili flakes (optional)
    1 Tsp. kosher salt
    1 tsp. fresh ground pepper.

    In a mixing bowl put the soy sauce, cut the lemons in half, squeeze all their juice into the bowl and put the lemons in too, crush the garlic cloves and put them in, add the oil, chili flakes, salt and pepper. Mix it up. Place the chicken in a ziploc bag and pout the marinade over the chicken. Let marinade for a good four hours (overnight is better), turning the bag over half way through.

    Take the chicken out, pat it dry and grill it or roast it in the oven!

    By the way, for a little more Asian flavor you could add 1 tsp. of toasted sesame oil to the marinade.
    Also, this marinade is great on pork and beef too.

    Give this a try and I think you'll love it!!
