Grilled Thai Style Chicken ™

This is an easy recipe for grilled chicken. I've used chicken thighs, but this also works with chicken breasts. 

1 lb chicken thighs
1/8 - 1/4 tsp each: salt, pepper
1/2 tsp each: diced fresh ginger, sesame oil
1 lime zest and juice
1 clove garlic crushed and chopped
pinch of red pepper flakes
1/8 tsp turmeric
2 T low sodium soy sauce
2- 3 T oil (olive or canola)

In a shallow dish combine chicken thighs, salt, pepper, ginger, sesame oil, lime juice, lime zest, red pepper flakes, garlic, turmeric and soy sauce.  Flip chicken over a few times to coat both sides. Cover dish with plastic wrap and let marinate in refrigerator for a few hours.

Heat grill pan to medium high heat, lower heat to medium  and add oil. Place chicken and grill for 10-12 min on 1 side. Flip chicken over on other side and grill for 10 - 12 min or until done. 

Serves 4.
