- 1/3 cup low-sodium soy sauce
- 1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1-piece fresh ginger, peeled and minced
- 4 spring onions, thinly sliced
- 1 tsp allspice
- ½ tsp cinnamon
- ¼ tsp nutmeg
- Freshly ground black pepper
- ¼ cayenne pepper
- ¼ tsp thyme
- Lime slices and spring onion for garnish
In a large bowl, combine all ingredients and whisk until combined.
Add chicken and toss to coat.
Transfer to the refrigerator and marinate for at least 30 minutes and up to
Heat grill to high.
Grill chicken until charred and cooked through, 20 to 25 minutes.
Serve with lime slices and spring onions.
I served with a salad made with Macadamia oil and balsamic vinegar salad dressing.
