Mexican Thai Fusion Chicken

Rated as 4.5 out of 5 Stars

"Tasty marinated chicken gets a kick from smokey ancho chili peppers. Serve with a mandarin and spring green salad and a good Riesling. Alternately, you can skewer chicken on bamboo skewers which have been soaked for about 20 minutes and cook them over a small flame."

  1. Combine ancho chile, soy sauce, brown sugar, lemon grass, ground turmeric, and ground allspice together in a large resealable bag; add chicken and shake until coated. Refrigerate and marinate chicken for at least 1 hour.
