Best Marinated Chicken

This is a super easy and delicious recipe for marinated chicken. My kids are picky, and even they love it! The chicken is good by itself, but extra yummy added to stir-fry vegetables and rice. The secret is baking the chicken, and then finishing it on the BBQ for a few minutes. This recipe makes enough for the chicken. Double the recipe to have extras if you want to put it on the stir-fry vegetables.
