  • Large Bowl
  • Grill


  • 12 ounces Root Beer 1 can
  • 2 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
  • ½ cup soy sauce
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts


  • Combine root beer, apple cider vinegar, vegetable oil, soy sauce and salt and pepper in a large bowl or container to make marinade. Add chicken to marinade. Cover and refrigerate for at least 3 hours, or overnight.  
  • Grill over medium-high heat until cooked through. 


  • If you are concerned about the amount of sodium in the recipe, you could easily use lemon juice or a low sodium soy sauce. The chicken just needs something a little more acidic to make it tender and juicy for grilling.
