Grilled Asian Chicken

Juicy and tender Grilled Asian Chicken smothered in a sweet and spicy Asian sauce. Less than 10 minutes of prep time!

Grilled Asian ChickenTime to fire up the grill again. This time with a sweet and spicy Asian inspired grilled chicken breast.

This chicken is suuper easy to make. Perfect for a busy weeknight meal. It starts with a sweet and spicy asian marinade. Made with soy sauce, garlic, ginger, brown sugar, sesame oil and sriracha. I use half the sauce as a marinade and reserve the rest for drizzling the chicken once it is cooked. This sauce makes an awesome marinade for veggies and meats.

Grilled Asian ChickenI let the chicken marinade for at least an hour to soak up the sauce. It goes on the grill for about 4-5 minutes on each side.

While the chicken is on the grill I heat up the other half of our Asian marinade in a small saucepan until it’s thick and can coat the back of a spoon.

I like to serve this chicken with my Spicy Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Cilantro Lime Brown Rice.
