This super quick and mega tasty marinade on this chicken I completely made up on the spot, with what I had in the fridge and cupboard. It was such a success with my family and so yummy, I thought I had to just share it with you.
In fact, this chicken was destined to be made into a whole other dish, ( I menu plan!) but on getting closer to cooking time, I changed my mind and decided to cut up the whole chicken I had into 10 pieces and whip up a marinade using what herbs I had and a few spices from the pantry.
The best part was, it took less than 5 minutes to whip up the marinade, then approx. 30-40 minutes to cook the chicken in a hot oven. While the chicken was cooking, I then whipped up a quick fried rice with some leftover brown rice that was in the fridge and some chopped up veggies.
I like to call this my Wicked Asian Spiced Chicken. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
