Asian Herb Marinade

Oh how I miss the week of 80 degree weather! It's been raining here for weeks I feel and I'm DYING to be outside grilling at our new place on our new grill! What a tease that week was in April! It put me in the mood for grilled corn on the cob, and other fun stuff like this recipe, and this recipe! It's also made me long for this here recipe: Grilled Chicken with Asian Herb Marinade.

This is one of my favorites! It's perfect for grilled chicken or chicken kebobs. I made this back during that beautiful week with some marinated mushrooms and couscous! It was even wonderful the next day!

Asian Herb Marinade
recipe by Sabrina W. for eat.drink.and be merry.
marinates 4 chicken breasts
6 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 tablespoons sesame oil
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons of minced garlic
1 tablespoons freshly grated ginger
1/4 cup freshly chopped cilantro
3 tablespoons brown sugar
black pepper
pinch red pepper flakes
3 scallions, thinly sliced

Whisk together all ingredients and pour over chicken. Let marinate 4 hours to overnight. (Ideally, you can always marinate for a couple hours or baste your chicken with it while on the grill. I did both.)

Looks like a very well balanced marinade with elements of salt, sweet, and spice. Congratulations on making the foodbuzz Top 9!
