Turkey or Chicken Marinade

15 oz. soy sauce
18 oz. peanut oil
1 quart 7-up
2 T. lemon juice
1 T. horseradish
Garlic salt to taste

Blend quickly in blender until all ingredients are well mixed. Use tenderloin turkey breast, preferably cut into 1" strips. You can also use chicken tenderloins. Marinate for 8-24 hours, then grill on barbecue. (Marinade for 10-12 pounds turkey or chicken.)

From whence it came: Another big thanks to Shelley Dahlin for another great recipe! Shelley published this in a church cookbook years ago and under the title it says "Guaranteed to be a hit" and it really is!

Why it's blogable: The ingredients for this marinade are "unusual" but seriously a great combination. Every time I have made this people have loved it and asked for the recipe. I have never made it with turkey, I've only used chicken, but I know Shelley really prefers to use the turkey tenderloins. Trust me, it's good either way. You can cut the recipe in half if you don't need to marinate that much meat. I just put the meat and marinade in a zip-lock bag and put it in the fridge. I always put the chicken tenders on wooden skewers before putting them on the grill. I think it just makes it easier to cook and it looks cool when you serve it that way.

Just an idea: You could serve it with one of Shelley's other great recipe, The World's Best Pasta Salad. You could also serve it with Campfire Potatoes. This recipe is a real crowd pleaser!

Hope you enjoy stirring it up!
