How to Make ORIENTAL MARINATED GRILLED CHICKEN

Step-by-Step

  1. Add all marinade ingredients to pint jar; cover jar with tight lid; shake well. Refrigerate until needed. May be made up to several weeks in advance. Shake well before each use.
  2. Place each piece of chicken between 2 sheets of plastic wrap; pound with flat mallet until 1/2 to 3/4 inch thick.
  3. Place meat in bowl/dish or zipper bag; add enough marinade to generously cover meat. Refrigerate and allow meat to marinate for 1 to 2 hrs.
  4. Preheat preferred grill to medium/medium-high temperature (George Foreman grill, indoor grill pan, or outdoor grill.)
  5. Drain and discard marinade from chicken.
  6. Place each piece of chicken on preheated grill, cover with lid or foil, and cook over medium/medium-high heat for approximately 1 1/2 to 2 minutes per side (may take less time on indoor grill that cooks from both top and bottom, such as a George Foreman.) If less charring is preferred, pat chicken dry with paper towels after draining off the marinade.
  7. Cover and refrigerate leftovers. Never reuse marinade that has contacted raw meat.
