Chicken So Good So Easy

How good is this chicken?  Slap it on your grill, and just the aroma will make every dog in the neighborhood start to howl.  And some of their owners, too.

How easy is this chicken?  Let me show you.

First mix up a quick marinade using:
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce or coconut aminos
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • juice of 1 fresh lime
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon ginger juice (I use this brand.) or grated fresh ginger
Whisk all ingredients together, then reserve 1/4 cup of the marinade.  For what?  You'll see.  

Pour the remainder into a plastic gallon-size Ziploc bag, and add 2 or 3 pounds of boneless chicken thighs to the bag.  Seal it, shake it, pop in the fridge for 2 hours

Then grill it.  (Use earplugs if all the howling gets on your nerves.)  Or if you prefer, 30 minutes in a 450F degree oven works just fine, too.

Look good?  Well, we're not done yet.

Heat up a wok or a large skillet on high heat.  Pour in the reserved marinade and let it get all sizzly.  Add fresh or frozen vegetables of your choice and stir fry.  Cook it until the veggies are tender and the sauce has been reduced to a glaze all over the vegetables. 

I love how steamy this gets.  I used a package of frozen Oriental-style vegetables, but just about any veggie you like will work out great.

Plate it all up, and dig in.  (And try not to howl!)
