Directions

  1. Place the soy sauce, brown sugar, lime juice, orange juice, sweet chili sauce, chili-garlic sauce, garlic, and curry powder in a large plastic zipper bag. Seal and knead the bag with your fingers to mix all the ingredients and dissolve the sugar. Place the chicken thighs into the marinade, squeeze out the air from the bag, zip the bag closed, and refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight.
  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-low heat; lightly oil the grate.
  3. Remove the chicken from the bag, pour the excess marinade into a small saucepan, and bring to a full boil for about 1 minute to sterilize the marinade.
  4. Grill the chicken thighs until they are no longer pink in the middle and show grill marks, about 25 minutes, basting them generously with the sterilized marinade as they grill.

Forget about bland or mild tasting grilled chicken; this piquant marinade hits all the right savory, sweet, zesty and spicy notes. I used the proportions listed, save for the fresh juice -- I zested and used the entire lime and orange (no measuring). Left bone-in chicken breasts to marinate overnight, then grilled over med-low heat to flavorful perfection. Served with a ginger dipping sauce alongside...but the sauce was barely touched.

This is a pretty good recipe. I thought it would have been a little spicer but maybe it was because I didn't use the chili-galic sauce (I looked in 4 different stores and couldn't find it anywhere!) Overall, the recipe was great and easy to prepare. Thanks!

Wow...what a delicious marinade for chicken. I used chicken breasts, just because that's what we prefer, and marinated it only for two hours because I ran out of time and the flavors still came through beautifully. I loved the sweet chili sauce and the spicy chili sauce all rolled into one. I made this with Thai Pineapple Fried Rice (one of our lovely Buzz lady's personal recipe) and it made a perfect meal. This will be a definite repeat meal in my house!
