Asian Grilled Chicken

Recipe from: Real Mom Kitchen

1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup soy sauce
2 1/2 Tbsp lime juice
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (I had to substitute chili powder)
1/4 tsp curry powder
4 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 Tbsp grated fresh ginger (I used ground ginger)
6 boneless, skinless chicken thighs (I used chicken breasts)

1. In a small bowl, combine the sugar, soy sauce, lime juice, ginger, cayenne pepper, curry powder, garlic, and ginger. Whisk to combine until the sugar dissolves. Set aside 2 Tbsp of the marinade for grilling.
2. Place chicken in a gallon sized zip-lock bag. Pour the marinade over the chicken. Place in the fridge to marinate for at least 4 hours, or overnight is best. Turn the bag over halfway through the marinating process.
3. Grill for 5-10 minutes on each side depending on the thickness. During the last few minutes of cooking brush a the reserved 2 Tbsp of marinade.

**It had good flavor and cooked really well.  We enjoyed it!
