11.5-inch piecefresh Ginger rootminced
2tablespoonsSoy Sauce (regular or gluten-free)Tamari may also be used
4-5leavesfresh Sagechopped (OR 3 tbsp. chopped cilantro OR 2-3 crushed bay leaves)
Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl or emulsify in a blender (no need to mince or chop with the latter method).
Place chicken in a shallow dish, preferably of glass or heavy plastic (citrus acid reacts with metal and can leave your chicken tasting "tinny"), or in large resealable freezer bag, and pour marinade over top.
Refrigerate for at least one hour, preferably 2 to 6 hours (bone-in chicken breasts can be left overnight, but boneless chicken breasts should not marinate more than 4 hours).
Cook as desired.
Nutritional Facts are for the entire batch of 2 3/4 cups marinade.
