Lime-Garlic-Ginger-Sesame Chicken Thighs
8 large chicken thighs, skin removed, but bone in
grated rind, and juice of 1 large lime,
3 large cloves garlic, minced or grated
1" piece fresh ginger root, grated
1/2 tsp garam masala spice
hot red chili flakes to taste
2 Tbsp canola or other mild vegetable oil
1 Tbsp dark toasted sesame oil
3 Tbsp chopped fresh coriander (cilantro) for garnish
- place chicken parts in 9 x 9" baking dish. Blend remaining ingredients in small bowl, pour over chicken and mix to combine. Cover, and marinate for 1 to 4 hrs in the fridge. Place uncovered dish in cold oven, turn to 350 degrees F. and bake for 45 to 50 min. or till juices run clear when pierced with a fork. Baste the chicken with pan juices during baking.
Total carbs, around 10, so just over 1 carb gram per piece. This is so good cold, I intentionally make leftovers.
This recipe can be adapted for chicken leg quarters, or chicken breast pieces....... just adjust baking time up or down depending on size.
This recipe is based on my Lemon-Garlic-Herb Chicken recipe http://www.lowcarb.ca/recipes/poultry104.html - Both are originals, from me to you. Hope you enjoy... :-)
