    Serves: 4 

    • 5 tablespoons soy sauce
    • 5 tablespoons dark brown soft sugar
    • 2 tablespoons lime juice
    • 2 tablespoons orange juice
    • 1 tablespoon sweet chilli sauce
    • 1 teaspoon chilli-garlic sauce (such as Sriracha)
    • 3 cloves garlic, minced
    • 1/4 teaspoon curry powder
    • 4 skinless, boneless chicken thighs

    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Extra time:4hr marinating  ›  Ready in:4hr40min 

    1. Place the soy sauce, brown sugar, lime juice, orange juice, sweet chilli sauce, chilli-garlic sauce, garlic and curry powder in a large plastic zipper bag. Seal and knead the bag with your fingers to mix all the ingredients and dissolve the sugar. Place the chicken thighs into the marinade, squeeze out the air from the bag, zip the bag closed, and refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight.
    2. Preheat an outdoor BBQ for medium-low heat; lightly oil the grate.
    3. Remove the chicken from the bag, pour the excess marinade into a small saucepan, and bring to a full boil for about 1 minute to sterilise the marinade.
    4. Barbecue the chicken thighs until they are no longer pink in the middle, about 25 minutes, basting them generously with the sterilised marinade as they cook.

    NOT BAD AT ALL  -  29 May 2010


    Wow...what a delicious marinade for chicken. I used chicken breasts, just because that's what we prefer, and marinated it only for two hours because I ran out of time and the flavors still came through beautifully. I loved the sweet chili sauce and the spicy chili sauce all rolled into one. I made this with Thai Pineapple Fried Rice (one of our lovely Buzz lady's personal recipe) and it made a perfect meal. This will be a definite repeat meal in my house!  -  22 Sep 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is a pretty good recipe. I thought it would have been a little spicer but maybe it was because I didn't use the chili-galic sauce (I looked in 4 different stores and couldn't find it anywhere!) Overall, the recipe was great and easy to prepare. Thanks!  -  06 Nov 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
