What’s better for the Fourth of July than a barbeque? Here’s a recipe for a chicken BBQ dish, rain or shine.
Ginger and Lime Marinated Chicken
Ginger and lime are a perfect pairing for summertime cocktails and also make a great combo with grilled chicken.
Pat chicken dry and season with 1 ½ teaspoons of salt.
Stir mayonnaise, lime zest and ginger together in a large bowl, season generously with salt and pepper.
Add the chicken to the mixture and stir to coat. You can put it in a plastic bag if refrigerator space is tight.
Marinate for up to 8 hours, but no less than 4 hours. Before cooking, let the chicken come to room temperature.
Heat the grill to medium-high. Grill the chicken over direct heat until it has cooked through and juices run clear, about 5 minutes per side for thighs and about 4 minutes for breasts. Turn as needed to avoid burning.
This recipe can also be prepared in a skillet:
Heat large skillet over medium-high heat.
Plate the chicken with large lime wedges for squeezing to add more zing.
Greek yogurt can be substituted for the mayo, but don’t use fat-free.
Enjoy the holiday weekend!
