Thai Garlic Chicken

Thai food is a easy way to bring a little zest and spice into your meal. Traditional ingredients and combination create a great base for most Thai dishes. Coconut milk, lemongrass, and ginger are just a few. This simple marinaded chicken captures several traditional ingredients with ease.

Full time: 1 hour (fast marinade, I actually do all day marinading)
Serves 2-4

You will need:

2 lbs. boneless skinless chicken thighs
1 cup coconut milk
1/3 cup honey
1/2 tbsp lemon juice
1/2 tbsp garlic powder
1 tsp coriander
1 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
1/2 tsp salt

Let us begin:

In a large bowl, whisk together all ingredients (except chicken).

Add chicken into bowl, trying to submerge as much as possible.

Cover with plastic wrap and let marinade 30minutes. Or do what I do marinade while your at work all day, less time at night and more robust flavors.

Once marinaded, pre-heat your grill to a good medium-high heat.

Carefully, remove chicken from marinade and place on hot grill. Discard remaining marinade.

Grill 8-10 minutes, turn over.

Grill an additional 8-10 minutes or until thermometer reaches 180'.

Remove from grill, serve, and enjoy!
