Summer Grilling-- Chicken Marinade

Summer Grilling Marinade for Chicken @livligahome
I think we are all about spending more time outside in the summer time. There seems to be less cooking but more enjoyment of the fresh foods that abound.

We really like to grill on our patio for dinners. Then we sit outside for the meal.Often it is cooler outside rather than inside at that time of the day. So pleasant.

A kid friendly chicken marinade that is very easy to prepare is:

Summer Grilling Marinade for Chicken

1/4 cup low sodium Soy Sauce
1 tsp. sesame oil
3-4 Tbls. fresh lemon juice (Meyer Lemon the best!)
Pulp from the lemon
1 tsp. ground ginger
1 tsp. chopped garlic

Pour, drizzle and sprinkle on top of the rinsed chicken that has been placed in a pyrex dish. Marinate for at least 20 minutes. Place on a hot grill. Grill chicken on 4 sides for 3 minutes each or until done.

If this is for a dinner with kids, I think using chicken legs is the best. So easy to pick up with your fingers/fist! They are also great for picnic fare, which includes adults.

As you can see from the photo, I paired the marinated grilled chicken with a rice pilaf and asparagus. It was a big hit, particularly the chicken!
