Teriyaki Chicken (Samoan Style)

So this is probably not the official name of this chicken but, I call it this because for years this is how our Samoan friends marinated the chicken for our BBQ's.  A big thank you to the guys who cooked for us through out our single and childless years!  I've tried to recreate this marinade by memory.  Here is how I remember it.

12 boneless skinless chicken thighs
2 cups of soy sauce
1 1/2 cups of brown sugar
1 cup of water
1 12oz. can of lite beer
1 lemon
3 green onions (chopped)
3 garlic cloves (minced)

Combine soy sauce, brown sugar, water and beer in large Tupperware dish.  Stir and let brown sugar dissolve.  Cut lemon and squeeze all the juice out of it.  Throw the lemon rind into the marinade mix.  Add chopped green onions, garlic and chicken.  This has to marinate a minimum of 5 hours.  Actually the longer this sits the better.  I like to start marinating the chicken the night before grilling.  This is always a crowd pleaser.  It makes great leftovers too!
