Orange-Soy-Ginger Grilled Chicken


In the summer, sometimes you just want a quick and easy grill night. This is for those nights.

I’m partial with marinades with soy sauce, I think it adds nice color to the meat and with soy sauce (even low sodium) you only need add a small touch of additional salt.

What to gather:

Chicken thighs (thawed)

2 cups soy sauce

a couple of dashes of mirin

3 tblspoons orange zest

1 tblspoon finely chopped garlic

1 tblspoon finely chopped ginger

What to do:

(now pay special attention here, because this is where the magic really happens)

Marinade for at least 15 minutes in the refrigerator; the longer the better.

Grill chicken.

BONUS:

Serve with grilled sweet corn. Soak corn in husk for at least 30 minutes.

Grill on indirect heat for about 7 minutes; husks should be slightly charred.
