I don't know about you guys, but with summer around the corner, I can't stand to think about standing around in the kitchen all day long. Besides, with things starting to heat up, who wants to deal with the excess warmth a hot stove brings? That's why we're changing things up around here and instead of big elaborate Sunday Dinners, we're going to dig up some great BBQ recipes for you.
I thought I'd start the grill up with a lively Lime & Coriander Chicken. You'll be surprised to know that a dish packed with so much flavor is actually really simple to whip up, just marinate and toss on the grill! Pair it with a nice side salad and a glass of a cold, dry white wine and you're set! To check out the recipe,
Note: This recipe calls for breasts, but I think you can get an even more flavorful experience if you use thighs instead.
2-3 tbsp vegetable oil
2 tbsp ground coriander
2 tbsp minced lemongrass
2 tbsp lime juice
1 tbsp fish sauce
1-1/2 tsp minced fresh ginger
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp sugar
6 boneless, skinless whole chicken breasts
vegetable oil for brushing chicken
In a small bowl combine all marinade ingredients. Place chicken in a resealable plastic bag set in a shallow dish. Pour marinade over chicken; close bag. Marinate in refrigerator 4 hours, turning occasionally to distribute marinade.
Lightly brush chicken with oil. Place in center of cooking grate. Grill 10 to 12 minutes until tender and no longer pink inside, turning once halfway through grilling time.
Makes 6 servings.
