“This recipe is a dramatic modification of an Asian Grilled Chicken recipe I found on Yahoo Health. It's spicy and delicious. I originally made it with chicken thighs but it also works with chicken breasts. Sid dishes I have had it with are asparagus, grilled brussels sprouts, curry couscous and rice pilaf. 5 minutes to prepare, 30 minutes to marinate. "Mmmm, those are great thighs!"”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix all the ingredients in a small bowl (except for the chicken thighs).
  2. Pour the mix into a ziplock plastic sandwich bag.
  3. Place one thigh in the bag and coat thouroughly by massaging the mix around the thigh.
  4. Place the second thigh in the bag withg the first and coat thoroughly.
  5. Refrigerate chicken in the bag for a minimum of 30 minutes or overnight.
  6. On a tinfoil covered cookie sheet, bake the chicken for 45 minutes or until no longer pink.
  7. Alternate microwave instructions: Cook in bag (partially open) in a microwavable dish at 1/2 power for 5 minutes.
  8. Flip the bag over and cook for 5 minutes at 1/2 power for 5minutes.
  9. Remove chicken from bag and dish and broil on the top shelf at high setting for 5 minutes.
