Asian Grilled Chicken
posted May 9, 2008 by Gina
I love spring! It’s so nice to get outside and use my grill.
Here is a tasty Asian inspired recipe for grilled chicken recipe I love to make when the weather warms. Letting it marinade overnight gives you the best results. This marinade is also great on boneless, skinless thighs. Serve this with a salad, rice or vegetables.
