Soy Marinated Grilled Chicken Thighs

I found this recipe in my Cooking Light magazine this month (July 2008). It was so easy and so so good. I don’t cook with chicken thighs often, this was my first time actually grilling them, I love how they turned out, very juicy and moist. I served the chicken with sauteed zucchini, squash and asparagus drizzled with a soy/sesame sauce that I put together at the last minute. I threw some soy sauce, a small amount of the red chili sauce, a drop of sesame oil and some sesame seeds in a bowl and whisked it together. Easy dinner and easy cleanup for a Sunday night!! Enjoy!

    Congrats on the new blog award. You so deserve it as this is one excellent blog. The soy and thyme combo sounds so good-simple yet delicious. Can’t wait to try it.

    I have this recipe flagged already in my Cooking Light Magazine. I’m glad you made it first and liked it. I’ll make it this weekend. I made the chopped vegetable salad on page 164 (part of 4 menu) and added feta cheese. It went well with our BLT’s w/turkey bacon that we had tonight. Enjoy seeing what your cookin up.

    What a simple recipe. I am all for those sometimes and I bet the soy added just enough flavor. These look delicious.
