Basil Marinated Chicken Thighs
Here is what you will need:
4 boneless, skinless chicken thighs
2 tsp cilantro (use fresh if you have it, I did not)
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 TBS fresh grated ginger
3 TBS soy sauce
2 TBS fish sauce
3 TBS brown sugar
1 to 2 tsp sriracha sauce or more if you like spicy
small bunch of basil, choppedd
olive oil 2 TBS olive oil
chicken stock (to thin out marinade when making sauce)
Mix everything but the chicken and chicken stock in a large bowl. Mix until sugar dissolves.
Add the chicken thighs, coating well and let marinate in fridge for an hour.
Let chicken get to room temperature, spray your grill or grill pan with non-stick spray. Get the grill to medium high. Shake excess marinade off chicken and place on the grill, do not throw out marinade. Grill 6 to 8 minutes per side.
Add a splash of chicken broth/stock to the marinade. Do not taste the marinade.
Place it in a sauce pot and let it come to a complete boil, then turn down the heat and let it simmer and thicken.
When the chicken is done, put on a plate while you finish the sauce.
Stir the sauce and let it thicken.
When the sauce is thick, give it a taste and see if it needs more sugar, soy sauce, etc.Plate up you chicken and spoon over the sauce. Enjoy!
