Japanese Grilled Chicken & Basmati Rice

This is another food network recipe. I find a lot of the recipes on the food network website to be too fussy and/or difficult for quick weeknight meals to feed my family. This is one that is easy, quick and really good!

The Grocery List:

  • 1 x egg
  • 1/2 tsp salt (2.5 mL)
  • 1 tbsp paprika (15 mL)
  • 1/4 cup honey (60 mL)
  • 2 tbsp sesame oil (30 mL)
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce (30 mL)
  • 1 tbsp lime juice (15 mL)
  • 12 to 16 boneless skinless chicken thighs (600 g)
  • 1 1/2 cups basmati or jasmin rice (325 mL)
  • 3 cups water (750 mL)
Cooking It Up:

In the morning or the night before…Stir together egg, salt, paprika, honey, sesame oil, soy sauce and lime juice in a 9 x 13 inch pan.

Add chicken, cover with plastic wrap and set in refrigerator.

Just before dinner…Mix rice and water in a large microwavable casserole dish with a cover. Microwave rice and water on high for 10 minutes and medium for 10 minutes. Let stand.

Heat barbeque to medium.

Place marinated chicken thighs on grill, brush as much of the marinade all over each as soon as you put them on the grill, then discard the remaining marinade.

Cook each side for 7 to 10 minutes or until juices run clear.
