Making The Grilled Chicken
For the recipe, you will need rice vinegar, soy sauce (about ¼ cup each), sesame oil, sriracha chopped green onion (1 tablespoon each), honey (1 and ½ tablespoons) and a clove of garlic. It is recommended that you make a paste of the garlic clove – if not a paste, then you can also chop it up and dice it very finely. This prevents chunks of garlic falling into your mouth and ruining the eating experience. A paste or fine dicing ensures that the garlic blends smoothly with the recipe and enhances the flavor.
Marinating the Chicken
To make delicious grilled chicken, you need to marinate it well. That is the key to having a chicken that is soft and tender. Place your chicken inside a Ziploc bag and pour the marinade sauce that you have made into it. You can lay the Ziploc bag flat or place it in a shallow dish to ensure proper marination. You can also squish the chicken inside the bag to marinate it evenly. You should let it marinate for at least a couple of hours – the longer, the better. Leaving it overnight will produce the best results. You can also freeze the marinated chicken for future use. Take it out a day before cooking and allow it to thaw overnight. It is an easy dinner fix if you have a long week ahead.
This is the final step in making grilled chicken. Set your grill to medium heat and cook each side for about 8 minutes or as long as the pinkness of the chicken vanishes. A proper substitute for a grill can also be a grill pan. Cook it until it becomes a delicate brown.
