Honey Grilled Chicken


I was really bored of trying out the usual way of grilling the chicken using chilli powders & all the other masalas & I was really dying to try out something new... Talking about this recipe, its really simple.... & the unusual blend of honey, green chillies & soya sauce make a very delicious dressing for the chicken.

So here goes the detailed recipe :-

500 gms boneless chicken, cut into bite sized pieces
lemon wedges, for garnish

For the marinade :

2 tbsp soya sauce
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp honey
2 tsps sesame oil (I did'nt have sesame oil, so settled down for olive oil)
2 green chillies, finely chopped
1 heaped tbsp finely chopped corainder leaves
salt, to taste

Combine all the ingredients for the marinade in a large bowl & mix well. Add the chicken pieces turning them to coat them well in the marinade. Cover the bowl & refrigerate for atleast 2 hours.

Preheat oven to 350 deg F. Place chicken pieces on an oven proof dish & grill uncovered for 15 - 20 mins on one side & another 15 - 20 mins on the other side. Once done, turn over the chicken pieces once or twice more & grill till they get browned all over. You could also barbecue these on live coals.

Serve hot with lemon wedges & any chutney of your choice.

I like honey chicken served at Chinese takeouts, but this is so much healthier.

Tina, your marinade works beautifully for paneer too, not just chicken - I made it for dinner guests yesterday, as a starter, and they LOVED it! :) Thanks for the recipe!

Hey Shammi... thanx so much for trying the recipe. I am surely gonna try it out on paneer this time.

Thanx once again.

Oh, I forgot to add - I tossed the marinated paneer with 3 tbsp sesame seeds before grilling.
