If you are looking for a delicious chicken to make on the grill this summer, this Sweet Chili Grilled Chicken is a must try. You will find the flavor a little sweet, a little spicy… a bit of an Asian flare.
Sweet Chili Grilled Chicken
The same old chicken recipes have a tendency to become boring. I so frequently just grill some basic chicken to enjoy for our summer chicken meals. Then everyone throws on their favorite BBQ sauce. The family and I were becoming quite bored with just the plain seasoned grilled chicken. So, I have been making some new chicken marinades to add a bit of variety to our grilling this summer. Last week, I shared our Cilantro Lime Grilled Chicken. It was delicious and everyone really liked it.
Since my family loves Asian inspired chicken, I knew this recipe was sure to be a hit. Sweet chili sauce is one of my favorite sauces to use when creating a new recipe. The flavor is one that even my picky eaters seem to like.
I did use a bit of light soy sauce. I think the amount was just right. I never care for an overly soy sauce flavor in my foods. The rest of my family could toss on a whole bottle, lol. Soy is one of their favorite condiments. I paired our Sweet Chili Chicken with some Grilled Pineapple and a simple white rice. The dinner was light and fresh.
This Sweet Chili Chicken marinade is so simple with just a couple of ingredients. Grab yourself some light soy sauce, sweet chili sauce, garlic, ginger, garlic, brown sugar, and sesame oil. You can have your chicken ready to marinate in no time at all.
2 1/2 lb Chicken Breast, cut in half
1 cup Sweet Chili Sauce
1/4 cup Lite Soy Sauce
2 tbsp Sesame Oil (or Olive Oil)
1 tsp minced Garlic
1 tbsp Brown Sugar
1/4 tsp ground Ginger
Place chicken breasts into 1 gallon zippered freezer bag.
Add remaining ingredients.
Seal bag. Shake and squeeze to mix and coat.
Refrigerate for at least one hour or up to overnight.
Grill until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees.
Have you seen the handy plastic bag holders that are all the craze? I purchased myself two of Clip Storage Bag Holders from Amazon.com. They are great for making marinades and also freezer cookie! Such a handy product. Get yourself some if you have yet to do so!
