Lynsey Fryer's Marinated Chicken Thighs with Sweet Potato

Don’t you get bored with your own cooking? I do. Obviously I love to cook, or I wouldn’t author this blog. However, sometimes I need inspiration, so I’ve decided these next few weeks to give the massive collection of recipes I’ve saved from my favorite blogs and magazines a try to shake things up a bit and learn something new.

Today’s grilled chicken thigh recipe comes from Cooking Light Magazine.  I really like the Asian flavors the marinade imparts to the meat. The original recipe called for bone-in thighs, but I used boneless, so marinating the chicken for an hour was just fine.

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons less-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons ginger, grated
