Grilled Asian-Inspired Chicken Breasts





A sensational marinade for poultry, this fragrant Asian-inspired recipe is perfect for satays, cornish hen, chicken breasts or plump juicy thighs. With a sweet delicate flavour, the marinated chicken caramelizes beautifully on the grill, allowing the intoxicating character of the marinade to shine through. Basting the chicken while on the grill ensures that the chicken stays moist and flavourful, as well as producing attractive grill marks for a lovely presentation, especially when garnished with fresh lemon, parsley and flowering thyme.



Grilled Asian Chicken 
Serves 2

Marinade:
2 chicken breasts, bone-in and skinless
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp ground coriander
1/2 tsp turmeric
1 tsp garlic, minced
1 tbsp white sugar
1 tbsp vegetable oil
1 tbsp soy 
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp fish sauce

Garnish:
1 lemon, sliced
3 sprigs of fresh parsley
4-5 sprigs of fresh flowering thyme


Slice the chicken breasts in half and place into a bowl with all the marinade ingredients then toss well to coat thoroughly. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours. Preheat the BBQ on high then grill the chicken breasts for about 6-8 minutes per side, or until golden brown and they each have nice grill marks.
