Yield 4 servings (serving size: 2 thighs)
Soy sauce is great in marinades for grilled chicken, as it stands up to charred flavors. The simple solution would also be tasty with steaks, pork tenderloin, or pork chops.

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons extravirgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
  • 8 (2-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken thighs
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • Cooking spray
