Simple Asian Honey Grilled Chicken with Marinade

After enjoying the 30 Minute Sweet and Sour Pork so much, Chad surprised me by admitting that he does indeed like Asian flavors. Imagine my surprise after 9 months of Chinese food cravings and a husband that I had to drag kicking and screaming.  So, this was a great piece of news.  Immediately the wheels started turning. So, first I decided to bring it to the grill.

This Simple Asian Honey Grilled Chicken with Marinade comes together so easily and makes a fabulous dinner that is a nice change of pace for us!  It is absolutely perfect served over a bed of Asian Rice (which will post this week).

Chad absolutely loved it and I am sure you will too!  

30 Minute Sweet and Sour Pork rivals ANY Chinese restaurant & a special ingredient to crisp pork with out frying.  This recipe is a keeper!

Simple Asian Honey Grilled Chicken with Marinade
¼ low sodium cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons sesame oil
¼ cup fresh orange juice
¼ cup honey
1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
1 tablespoon grated fresh garlic
3 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts, washed and trimmed

In a small bowl combine all ingredients (except chicken).  Whisk until well combined.  Place chicken in a 1 gallon resealable bag, add marinade and seal bag. 

Rub the chicken with the marinade to make sure it is covering all the chicken.  Place the chicken in the refrigerator (I have made this recipe and marinated for as little as 30 minutes and as long as 2 days.  Overnight is just perfect).  Turn the chicken occasionally.

Preheat grill to medium-high.  Place chicken on the counter to come to room temp.

Grill chicken about 4-5 minutes on each side (until cooked completely through).  Serve and enjoy.

Cooking Tip:  If you don’t want to grill, you can still enjoy this fantastic chicken.  Preheat your oven to 425°.  Bake for 30 minutes in the marinade, in a 9x13 pan.

  1. Sounds like a great blend of flavors! Love orange and ginger and garlic. Those three alone have me drooling. Great marinade Donna.

  2. Nice marinade recipe. I like all the flavors and they definitely work well together! Go, Chad. We might bring you over to the vegetable side of the plate someday too!

  3. at last! A asian grilled chicken recipe. I don't have too many of these in my arsenal so I am excited about this one

  4. bringing Asian flavors to teh grill brings it to a new level. This is awesome.


  5. My hubby claims not to like Chinese restaurants, but whenever I make something using Asian flavors, he loves it. Go figure. I know he'd be a big fan of this, too!

  6. Seriously, Chinese and Thai are my fav foods on the planet!! This looks like a winner and I'll have to try :)

  7. Love the sound of this chicken. It seems you can never have enough recipes for boneless chicken, it's lean, takes on a zillion flavor variations and it's the right price! Love the orange in this one, a nice twist!

  8. That would be a great marinade for chicken kabobs too, nice post!

  9. What a wonderful marinade, that I will be trying very soon.

  10. I don't like Chinese food either, well at least not the Western version of it commonly found in Chinese restaurants. I fell in love with Chinese food while I was stationed in Japan. Thank you for the recipe! =)

  11. Many thanks for idea Have a great day. Yummy!
