Garlic-Ginger Chicken

Garlic-Ginger ChickenI found this recipe in the October issue of Food Network Magazine that sounded really simple and tasty…I was right. The chicken had a really wonderful garlic-ginger flavor and was so tender and juicy. I served this Chicken with Carrot-Ginger Rice and Sesame Green Beans. We all loved this meal and I will be serving it again and again.

How to Make Garlic-Ginger Chicken

Combine the chicken, onion, garlic, ginger, soy sauce, orange juice, and orange zest together in a large zip lock bag. Place in the refrigerator and marinate for 1-24 hours.

Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat with the olive oil. Once the pan is hot, add the chicken thighs. Cook for 4-5 minutes then flip over and cook for another 3-4 minutes or until the meat is cooked through. Set on a platter to let the meat rest for 5 minutes before serving. Enjoy.
