Sweet Chili Grilled Chicken

Sweet Chili Grilled Chicken

Sweet Chili Grilled Chicken has an easy marinade and done in no time on the grill.

I make SOOOO many sauces and marinades by simply combining store bought sauces into different flavor combos.

I keep a large variety of sauces just for that reason.

You really can’t go wrong with sweet chili sauce, it just may be one of my favorite sweet and spicy flavors.

How to Make Sweet Chili Grilled Chicken

First, set out the soy sauce, sweet chili sauce, sriracha, garlic, and ginger.

Then trim the extra fat from 4 to 6 boneless skinless chicken thighs.

I like using my kitchen scissors for that job.

And place them in a gallon size plastic bag.

You could use chicken breasts, but I love the juicy flavor of the thighs.

If you do go with chicken breasts, you may only need 3 to 4 because they are larger in size compared to the thighs.

ingredients for marinade

Add 1/4 cup sweet chili sauce, 2 tablespoon soy sauce, and a tablespoon each of the garlic, ginger, and sriracha.

I used garlic paste instead of minced garlic, it’s so convenient and easy.

And for the ginger, I used my microplane grater.

Massage the bag until the chicken is coated.

And place in the fridge to marinate overnight.

Once ready to grill, preheat the grill to medium high heat.

These will grill 5 to 6 minutes per side.

I am a sucker for those char marks, so I always move the chicken to the hottest part of the grill for the second half of cooking.

Everyone in my family knows I always pick the most charred chicken at dinner, so good!
