Ginger Molasses Marinade for Chicken or Pork (Or Even Tofu)
5 mins (prep 5)
5 ingredients
4 servings
In my never ending quest to bring new flavors to the table I came upon this recipe in a decade old copy of Cooking Light. I have tried it with chicken but think it might work just as well with pork or even tofu. I've played with the balance of ingredients to suit my own tastes. The ginger gives a bit of heat to balance the sweetness of the molasses, but if you want more a dash of red pepper flakes would work.
