My little 4 year old loves "chicken on the bone". He thinks that is the only way to eat chicken (no one bother to tell him that is the "cheap" way to eat chicken. I made this Asian BBQ Chicken out of my Cooking Light Book the other day. I marinated it with skinless bone in thighs. Keaton took one taste paused looked at me and in all seriousness said...."UNBELIEVABLE". I think that is pretty rave reviews!
Asian BBQ Chicken Marinade
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 Tbsp fresh lime juice (I used fresh lemon and threw a tad of rind in there for kicks)
1/2 tsp red crushed pepper (I used closer to 1/4)
1/4 tsp curry powder
3 garlic cloves minced
8 skinned thighs
Put all ingredients in a ziptop bag 4 hours to overnight. Squish it all together. Every so often turn the bag. Grill (I used my Panini press layed flat, an indoor grill would also work as would the oven if you REALLY had to :).


  1. That does look sooooo good. And I think everyone should have a Keaton in their kitchen. At least when he likes dinner ...

  2. Like I said...I need to have Keaton over at my house for dinner! Haa! So cute! Your recipe sounds delicious!! I'm definitely going to have to try it! thanks!

  3. BTW, what kind of side dish did you serve with this one?

  4. I did brown rice and grilled zucchini. Boring, I know :)

  5. Keaton is hilarious. I loved his comments about our potatoes served in cages, and our salad from a box with a million different salads in it.

  6. sounds really similar to that teriyaki marinade. do the other spices make a big difference in the flavor? which one do you like better?

  7. This one doesn't have the oil Am so it is better in that way. I like them both. Keaton would say he likes this one better :)
