My marinated Asian chicken recipe is a simple yet flavorful dish. The savoriness of the fish sauce combined with the citrus notes of lime juice creates a chicken that is truly addicting. While this chicken can easily be eaten by itself, I love to place it on fresh bread and top it with pickled vegetables to recreate a banh mi style sandwich. Either way you eat it, you won’t be disappointed.
Marinated Asian Chicken Recipe
Prep/Marinating Time: At least 1 hour and not more than 24 Cook Time: 10-15 minutes Serves: 2
2 boneless skin less chicken breast
1/4 cup lime juice
1 tablespoon fish sauce
2 teaspoons granulated sugar
1 garlic clove, minced
1 teaspoon ginger, minced or grated
1/4 cup canola or vegetable oil
First, I suggest pounding the chicken breasts. So it makes for more tender meat and lets the sauce thoroughly marinate the chicken.
Next, place all of the ingredients in a gallon sized bag, mix thoroughly, and put in the refrigerator until ready to grill.
Finally, grill for about 5 minutes per side. Let the chicken rest for 5 minutes and then slice thin.
This chicken is great served in lettuce wraps, with sticky rice, or as the base of a banh mi sandwich.
