Marinating chicken adds flavor and tenderizes the meat. For safety, always marinate chicken in the refrigerator, though, because marinating at room temperature speeds up bacterial growth. Mr. Yoshida's is a dual purpose sauce used for cooking and marinating.


Use the sauce for chicken, seafood, pork, vegetables and beef whether grilling, broiling or baking. The sauce is available in three flavors — original gourmet, cracked pepper and garlic, and Hawaiian sweet and sour sauce.
