Marinating provides an opportunity for flavors to penetrate the chicken. The marinating time can vary tremendously and the results will still be tasty. I like to marinate overnight, in the refrigerator, but even three hours can add a lot to the flavor or your chicken.
1 chicken, cut in half lengthwise
1/2 cup peanut or vegetable oil
1/2 cup soy sauce
1 teaspoon minced, fresh ginger or 1 teaspoon ground
2 cloves garlic, minced
Salt to taste
Place chicken in a shallow dish. Add remaining ingredients and turn to coat well. Cover and marinate refrigerated for at least 3 hours. Place chicken skin side down on broiler rack. Pour half of marinade mixture in cavity of chicken. Broil 9 to 10 inches from broiler for about 30 minutes. Turn chicken, brush with remaining mixture. Broil 20 to 30 minutes longer or until cooked through.
