Chinese Barbeque Chicken

I went to my first weigh in since mid December and I knew it wasn't going to be good news so it didn't surprise me when I was told I gained 2.6 pounds. What can I expect for not tracking, not exercising, not watching what I ate? So I need to get back on track and lose those 2.6 pounds and then some. I have to say I did miss going to the meetings. I tried to do it online and it just wasn't cutting it for me. Our meetings are actually fun and my leader is hilarious. So back to the meetings I go and hoping to lose more weight. Here is a yummy recipe I wanted to share with you...
I love the taste of Asian food and this looked like a good recipe to try. I marinated it overnight to give it a full flavor and itt turned out delicious. It was very moist and I loved the taste of soy sauce on my chicken. I would definitely make this again especially if I didn't want just plain baked chicken. I served it with two sides of veggies although I would have preferred to have my white rice with this dish.

Chinese Barbequed Chicken
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1 clove garlic, minced
2 1/2-3 lbs. chicken
