Asian Barbecue Chicken

This recipe is not only very tasty, but easy to prepare for cooking early in the day. I cook the chicken in a saucepan and serve it over rice one night and then cut it up into a delicious stir-fry the next.


1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
1 Tablespoon fresh lime juice
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1/4 teaspoon curry powder
3 cloves garlic, minced
8 (6-ounce) chicken thighs, skinned
lime wedges
chopped green onions


1. Combine first 6 ingredients (through garlic) in a large zip baggie; add chicken. Seal and marinate in refrigerator 4 hours, turning occasionally.

2. Pre- heat grill.

3. Remove chicken from bag, reserving marinade. Place marinade in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil; cook 1 minute.

4. Place chicken on grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 20 minutes or until done, turning and basting frequently with the marinade. Garnish with lime wedges and green onions, if desired.


*If you are preparing this as a gluten free recipe, be sure to use a brand of soy sauce that is designated as GF.
*It's ok to substitute chicken breasts for the chicken thighs.
*For a great meal, serve with roasted sesame asparagus and a sesame-noodle salad.
