I was after something simple to make for dinner tonight that would take little effort, but would be big on flavour. Well really thats my goal every night; a big payout on flavour, with little effort. Tonight, the solution to my dilemma was BBQ’d Asian Chicken Thighs.
Its summer here, so whenever possible I am using the bbq to cook with. Aside from keeping the kitchen clean (I sound lazy), I can be cooking dinner while watching the kids play outside. You have to love that!
BBQ’d Asian Chicken Thighs
700gm chicken thighs
1/2 tsp himalayan salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder
3 Tbsn coconut aminos (or tamari)
Lay the chicken thighs flat down with the top side facing up to season.
Pour the coconut aminos (or tamari) over all of the chicken, so that it is all covered.
Then evenly sprinkle the salt, pepper and garlic powder over the chicken.
Leave to marinade for 15 – 30 mins.
Once marinaded, make sure the bbq plate is hot, and put the chicken top side down.
Cook on the first side for approx. 5 minutes, then turn over and cook for another 4 mins. The cooking time may vary depending on the size of your chicken thighs.
Once cooked rest for a minute and then serve with salad or your favourite sides.
Its so simple. It would make a great alternative to take along to a bbq day with friends when your told to bring meat for the bbq. Give it a try.
