This is a family favorite! Every time I serve this chicken, I get rave reviews! I serve this over coconut rice garnished with green onions. It makes a beautiful presentation. To make coconut rice, simply replace half of the water with coconut milk and cook rice as directed. This recipe makes a lot of marinade. If I am serving more people I will increase the amount of chicken and keep the recipe for the marinade the same. Goes really well with steamed broccoli or edamame.

  • Preheat grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate.

  • Remove chicken from marinade and discard the marinade.

  • Cook chicken on the preheated grill until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, 5 to 7 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

Cook's Note:

This recipe makes a lot of marinade. If I am serving more people I will increase the amount of chicken and keep the recipe for the marinade the same. Goes really well with steamed broccoli or edamame.
