Ginger-Lime Hoisin Chicken

This is by far Jeff's most favorite recipe for grilled chicken!


6 boneless skinless chicken thighs or 4 boneless skinless breasts
1/4 cup hoisin sauce
1 tablespoon grated lime rind
1 tablespoon fresh grated ginger or 1/2 teaspoon of powdered ginger
2 teaspoons sesame oil
2 tablespoons soy sauce
8 cloves minced garlic


Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl. Add chicken and coat well. Transfer to zip lock bag refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
Position the oiled grill 4-6 inches above the flame. Remove the chicken from the marinade ensuring that it is well coated. Arrange the chicken on the rack.  Grill chicken breasts, turning  2-3 times until the chicken is no longer pink it the center, 15-20 minutes. Brush often with the reserved marinade. If using thighs, turn once, brush with marinade, 5 minutes per side.
