Whisk together all ingredients in a bowl or marinade pan. If you are planning on grilling chicken, set aside a small amount of the marinade mixture for later use. Place chicken in the mixture, refrigerate, and let marinate overnight, or for at least several hours.
If you are baking or broiling your chicken, place the chicken in an oven safe dish, then pour some of the marinade over it. This will keep it very moist and tender through the cooking process.
If you are grilling your chicken, brush the extra marinade on during the cooking process. This will add a hint of extra flavor, and keep the chicken tender.
