1/3 cup soy sauce
6 cloves garlic, crushed

2 tablespoons Asian hot sauce of any kind
1/2 teaspoon sugar
4 large chicken breasts, boned and slightly flattened
Combine the lemon juice, soy sauce, garlic, vegetable oil, hot sauce, and sugar in a bowl and mix well. Place the chicken breasts in a large square baking dish and pour some of the marinade over them, reserving some marinade for basting. Cover the dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
