Asian Sensation! Grilled Chicken Marinades

One of my favorite grilled chicken marinades, the Asian Sensation combines all the flavors of the Orient.

Using marinades on chicken, especially boneless skinless cuts, let's you infuse such a wide variety of flavor to complement the rest of your meal.

When you remove the chicken from this marinade you can place the meat directly on the grill - then bring any of the leftover marinade to a gentle boil on the stove or side burner and use as a basting sauce while the meat cooks.

The nutty flavor of sesame oil combined with the tang of fresh ginger brings a nice Asian style flavor to the chicken.

These types of marinades typically take 4 - 8 hours and should be done with the dish covered and in the refrigerator.

Chicken absorbs the flavors really well but if left too long in a marinade it can become a little mushy.
