A Grilled Chicken Recipe with an Asian Flavor

For an easy grilled boneless chicken recipe, which has the wonderful flavor of the orient, you are sure to enjoy this one. Many people are unsure how to cook BBQ chicken but with this recipe you cannot go wrong. Soy sauce, honey, sesame oil, garlic, and ginger are used as a marinade for the chicken.

After that, you simply grill the chicken for four or five minutes on each side over a medium heat. You might want to boil the chicken in hot water for a couple of minutes before grilling them, just to ensure the inside is cooked properly.

Out of all the Asian style fried chicken recipes there are, this one is especially mouthwatering because the flavors are kept simple. Ginger, garlic, and honey are combined with fragrant sesame oil and a little soy sauce to give the chicken a great taste.

If you enjoy succulent chicken, this oriental barbecued chicken should be right up your street because the marinade infuses the chicken with wonderful flavor and helps it to stay juicy and delicious while you grill it. There is nothing like the aroma of grilled chicken on a hot summer's day, so why not invite the neighbors over, fire up the grill and make some delicious side dishes to go with this excellent grilled chicken recipe.
