thai chicken-hOK, so yesterday I shared my new favorite sauce (Peanut Sauce) and I mentioned that The Hubby and I love to drizzle it over grilled chicken, but we love it even more when we drizzle it over this grilled chicken.

Why this chicken?  Well it is all about the marinade.  The marinade is loaded with so much flavor…it has soy sauce, brown sugar, siracha, lime juice, fresh cilantro and so many other yummies making this chicken really something to remember.    

I love anytime I can marinade something that is going to be grilled, especially boneless & skinless chicken breasts.  I love grilling anything and everything but I LOVE grilled chicken…only problem is they can dry out really easily.  You know what I’m talking about…you get the chicken on the grill and everything is going great and then all of a sudden they are too charred and DRY…I mean really DRY.  Trust me I know it can happen to the best grillers and it can happen in no time flat…but when you marinade it you have a better chance of it staying nice and moist.

 The flavors from the marinade and grill come together to really bring out all the flavor of the chicken while giving it some personality and fun…then when you top it with the Thai Peanut Sauce it becomes a grilled chicken to remember.

I served the chicken with some roasted veggies, and a nice salad making for a light but very filling dinner.  You could also use this chicken over a salad and use the peanut sauce as the dressing…that is one of The Hubby’s favorite ways to eat it for sure.

Go ahead and bring some thai goodness to the table with just a little prep…you won’t need to order take out tonight!!
