Chicken – Garlic Ginger
by James Belardo

This tangy but not too sweet Garlic Ginger recipe is perfect for the BBQ season (which is all season in our world). Just remember to keep the temperature low so the chicken doesn’t burn and don’t forget to baste.

2-3 lbs. chicken (chicken parts – breasts, legs, thighs and/or wings – skin on)
2-3 cloves garlic, crushed and pressed
2-3 tbsp grated fresh ginger
2-3 tbsp honey
1 lime (juice)
1/2 cup orange juice
1/8 cup soy sauce
2 tbsp sesame oil
Salt – pinch
White Pepper – to taste
green onions or chives – topping
sesame seeds – topping
Peperoncino Fiocchi (hot pepper flakes) – optional

1. Mix the pressed garlic, grated ginger, honey, lime juice, orange juice, soy sauce, sesame oil, salt and white pepper. Heat in a small pot, let simmer for a few minutes, then remove from heat to allow to return to room temperature 

2. Toss the chicken with the mixture, let marinade for at least 30 minutes.

3. Preheat oven or BBQ to 225F or 250F (we use a Kamado-style BBQ with lump coal)

4. Remove chicken from marinade and reserve the left over marinade to use for basting while cooking.

5. Grill slowly and baste often.
