  • 1/2 cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup oil (vegetable or canola oil)
  • 12 ounces sprite (not diet)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon horseradish , plain or horseradish sauce
  • 2 pounds chicken tenders (or breasts)


  • Add soy sauce, oil, sprite, garlic powder and horseradish to a large ziplock bag. Add chicken and  marinate for 1-3 hours.
  • Heat grill to medium. Spray with cooking spray or rub the grill grates lightly with oil. Lay chicken on the grill and cook for a few minutes on each side, flipping only once, until cooked through. (I don't typically use a thermometer, but if you do, the chicken should be 165 degrees F at its thickest part). Move to a plate to rest for a few minutes before serving.
