Instructions

MAKE THE MARINADE

  • In a large bowl, add all the spices to the oil and soy sauce, then whisk to combine

PREP THE CHICKEN

  • Cut your chicken into thin strips and add to the marinade bowl.
  • Stir to combine and let sit for a few minutes to blend together

LET’S MAKE THE PACKETS

  • Lay 4 squares of tin foil down on the counter
  • Lay 4 squares on top, so we have a double layer
  • Liberally spray with nonstick spray leaving a border around the edges
  • Portion out between four 12×12 inch pieces of foil
  • Wrap up the packets tightly pinching all the seams together
  • Pierce top of foil once or twice with a fork to vent steam

TO THE GRILL:

  • Grill over medium high heat for about 20 minutes, turning over every 4-5 minutes until the chicken is cooked through, to 165F. About 20-30 mins.

OVEN:

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F and bake on 2 sheet pans for about 25-30 mins. Again, check them to ensure chicken is fully cooked.
