  1. Whisk the soy sauce, lime juice, sunflower oil, jalapeno pepper, garlic, ginger, coriander, brown sugar, and lime zest together in a bowl until the sugar dissolves. Place the chicken into a resealable plastic bag, and pour the marinade overtop. Mix to coat chicken, then seal bag, and refrigerate at least 2 hours.
  2. Heat a large, nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Remove the chicken from the marinade, and shake off excess. Place into skillet, skin-side down, and cook until the skin crisps, about 4 minutes. Turn chicken over, and continue cooking on the other side until no longer pink in the center. Once done, remove the chicken and keep warm. Pour the remaining marinade into a skillet. Dissolve cornstarch in water, and stir into the sauce until thickened and clear. Bring the mixture to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer 5 minutes. Serve chicken with sauce.

I tweaked this recipe to fit my liking, while still using the same ingredients recommended. The flavours I definitely wanted to make sure I could taste was the saltiness of the soy sauce, the ta...

After reading the other reviews for this recipe I was very skeptical about it. I did not have nor could I find coriander so the recipe went without. I used real garlic, Veggie Oil, and ground gi...

I reduced the soy by 1/2, and slightly increased the lime juice to taste. For personal preference I used bone in chicken. It tasted okay. THX.

My family enjoys this recipe. I use boneless skinless breat, marinate it overnight, and cook it on the gas grill. Yum! TY for sharing this recipe.

So, I can tell that I have been out of town for 2 weeks. I always have limes and jalopenos on hand. I had 1 lime and no jalopenos. So I used some lemons and chili pepper flakes to sub. I just ...

Someone said they couldn't find ground coriander, so they added cilantro. It's the same thing. Cilantro grows from coriander seeds, it's the leaf of the coriander plant. As someone else said, no...
