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.
