Honey Soy Grilled Chicken Thighs
3 - pounds skin on chicken thighs
(legs or breasts can be used)
2 - cloves garlic, minced
1/2 - cup soy sauce
1/4 - cup light brown sugar
1/4 - cup honey
1 - teaspoon olive or sesame oil
1 - tablespoon fresh ginger, minced
pepper to taste
green onions, garnish
In a shallow baking dish combine the garlic, soy sauce, brown sugar, honey, olive oil, ginger, pepper. Mix well to combine all the ingredients. Add the chicken thighs and marinate at least 4 hours in the refrigerator (This can also be done in a gallon size zip lock bag). If possible marinate longer because that is even better. Remove chicken from marinade and discard the marinade.
Heat gas or charcoal grill. When grill is heated, place chicken on gas grill over medium heat or on charcoal grill 4 to 6 inches from medium coals. Cook covered about 20 minutes or until juice is clear when center of thickest part is cut (170°F). Transfer the chicken to a serving plate. Garnish with green onions and serve.
