Soy Sauce & Orange Marinated Chicken with Plum Salsa

I recently made this when guests were here, and our grill season officially opened!  It was a hit, and I promised to put the recipes here for their access, so here’ goes!  The Plum Salsa is an unusual combination, but has an amazing taste; serve it chilled next to the grilled meat and it becomes spectacular!

Soy Sauce & Orange Marinated Chicken

½ C. oil
1 C. orange juice
1 C. dark soy sauce
1 Tbs. crushed garlic

4 chicken breasts

Combine all above in a large ziplock.  Massage the meat in the ziplock to coat thoroughly, then place the bag in the fridge (I set it in a bowl to keep the meat and sauce gathered, to cover the meat better).  It can be kept in the marinade in the fridge until ready to grill.  If you want, take the marinade left over and pour into a sauce pan; simmer or boil while stirring, to reduce, and sift in a spoonful of rice flour or other thickener to make a sauce to serve on the side.
