Asian Barbecue Chicken

I put this together to marinade on our last day in the RV. We got home abut 2 in the afternoon, cleaned out the RV and then grilled this for dinner. It was WONDERFUL and this will be a regular summer dish here in TX. I used thighs and breasts in this recipe.

Asian Barbecue Chicken

YIELD: 4 servings (serving size: 2 thighs)

1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1/4 teaspoon curry powder
3 garlic cloves, minced
8 (6-ounce) chicken thighs, skinned (Beth used breasts and thighs)
Cooking spray
Lime wedges (optional)
Green onion tops (optional)

Combine first 6 ingredients in a large zip-top plastic bag; add chicken. Seal and marinate in refrigerator 4 hours, turning occasionally.

Prepare grill.

Remove chicken from bag, reserving marinade. Place marinade in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil; cook 1 minute.

Place chicken on grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 20 minutes or until done, turning and basting frequently with the marinade. Garnish with lime wedges and green onion tops, if desired.
