In the summer months I’m all about my grill and I’m not talking teeth. Smirk. Each summer I load up my grill with fresh garden vegetables and Canadian chicken. I’m not a boring kind of gal, my breasts and thighs are never naked. Rubbed or marinated to perfection, my chicken is always coated and full of flavour. We have our favourite recipes but we decided to try a new one this last week, Ginger-Lime Grilled Chicken from Chicken Farmers of Canada, and it was a big hit, even the kids loved it.
- 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast(s)
- 8 boneless, skinless chicken thighs
- 1 lime, large
- 1 Tbsp honey
- 1 Tbsp ginger, fresh, finely grated
- 2 Tbsp canola oil
- 2 tsp cumin, ground
- ½ tsp salt
- Oil the grill and preheat barbecue to medium or place an oven rack in the centre of the oven and preheat the oven broiler. Place chicken on a cutting board and cover with a piece of plastic wrap or waxed paper. Press down with your hand to even out the thickness. Using a sharp knife, make shallow slashes at regular intervals on both sides of the chicken.
- Squeeze the lime juice into a small bowl. Stir in the honey, ginger, oil and seasonings. Brush all over the chicken, then place chicken on the barbecue or a foil lined baking sheet.
- BARBECUE: Barbecue with the lid down, turning and basting often with lime mixture, for 5 minutes. Then continue barbecuing, without basting,until chicken feels springy when pressed and meat thermometer reaches 165°F (74°C), about 5 to 7 more minutes.
- OVEN BROILING: Grill in the centre of the oven. Baste and turning often for the first 5 minutes, then continue grilling without basting until chicken feels springy and meat thermometer reaches 165°F (74°C), about 5 to 7 more minutes.
- Wonderful with rice cooked in coconut milk and grilled peppers or vegetable kebabs.
