Asian Grilled Chicken

I love spring! It’s so nice to get outside and use my grill.

Here is a tasty Asian inspired recipe for grilled chicken recipe I love to make when the weather warms. Letting it marinade overnight gives you the best results. This marinade is also great on boneless, skinless thighs. Serve this with a salad, rice or vegetables.
