Grilled Chicken with Curry-Soy Sauce

This recipe is great for curry lovers or people who want to give a little bit of curry a try. You can easily just grill the chicken and not bother with cooking the marinade into a sauce. Delicious both ways! I served this with saffron rice. The sauce is delicious over the rice as well!

  • cup reduced-sodium soy sauce

  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic

  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger root

  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice

  • 2 teaspoons curry powder

  • 6 (5 ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves

  • 1 ¼ cups low-sodium chicken broth

  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch

  • 1 teaspoon water


  1. Stir soy sauce, garlic, ginger, lime juice, and curry powder together in a glass container. Add chicken and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 1 to 3 hours.

  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate. Remove the chicken from the marinade and pour marinade into a small saucepan; set aside.

  3. Cook chicken on the preheated grill until no longer pink in the center and juices run clear, 4 to 6 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Remove from the grill and let rest for 10 minutes.

  4. While chicken is cooking, stir cornstarch and water together in a small bowl until well combined. Add to the reserved marinade, then mix in chicken broth. Bring sauce to a boil and cook until sauce has thickened a bit, 10 to 14 minutes. Serve curry-soy sauce over the chicken.
