Gourmet Garden sent me a fantastic box of goodies for participating in #HotSummerEats. Little Bowls of lightly dried herbs and tubes of herbs currently grace my fridge and my food. I have to admit, Gourmet Garden may have somewhat spoiled me for preparing my own herbs. It's so quick to squeeze and stir for a marinade or sprinkle over a pizza.
When I opened my April newsletter from the Looneyspoons gals, I found this recipe for grilled chicken. With my brand new bag of tricks from Gourmet Garden, I was inspired to adapt the recipe for two and for the herbs that I had. Grilled chicken. It's perfect for summer. And this marinade was delicious and fresh. It's even Looneyspoons, so it's healthy! What else can I say?
From the Looneyspoons April 2015 newsletter, I present to you now Honey-Lime Chili Grilled Chicken:
2 Tbsp honey
1 lime, juiced and zested
1 Tbsp soy sauce
1 Tbsp chili paste from Gourmet Garden
1 Tbsp oil
2 tsp garlic paste from Gourmet Garden
2 tsp ginger paste from Gourmet Garden
1/2 tsp cumin
4 large bone-in chicken thighs (I used skin on, but you could use skin removed)
Method:1. Whisk together all ingredients other than chicken in a measuring cup. Reserve 2 Tbsp for basting before pouring remaining marinade over chicken in a glass container. Turn to coat evenly, before covering and refrigerating at least 8 hours, or overnight.
2. Preheat the grill. Grill chicken over low heat, for about 10 minutes on each side or until done.
