I love love LOVE having this in my recipe arsenal. I bring chicken breasts home from the grocery store, and put them in ziplocks in pairs (a serving each for The Husband and I, plus probably extra for the little dude) with enough marinade to cover the chicken.
I throw them right into the freezer and take them out before leaving for work. As they thaw, they marinate – a great thing to have around for a really tasty dinner.
A note about the vinegar – any kind will do – I’ve used red wine, white wine, plain distilled white – malt probably isn’t good though.

- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
- 3 Tbs vinegar
- 3 Tbs vegetable oil
- 2 tsp onion powder
- 2 tsp garlic powder
- 2 tsp grated fresh ginger
- Combine all ingredients in a saucepan and heat gently until sugar is completely dissolved.
