Marinated And Grilled Chicken Thighs For Lunch.

 Mr. Hawthorne and I went to Foodlion the other day
and came home with on-sale boneless chicken thighs.
I buy no meat that is not on sale.
Call it aged, if you will.

I made a marinade for the thighs
and Youngest Hawthorne had the grilling honors.

Rosie's Marinade
2 shallots
1 garlic clove
Juice and zest of one lime
1 TB soy sauce
1/4 cup rice vinegar
1/4 cup sriracha sauce
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup oil

Purée shallots and garlic.
Add in rest of ingredients and mix well.
Pour into a large storage bag and add in chicken.
Refrigerate for at least an hour,
massaging occasionally and turning the meat.

I let the thighs bathe for 4 hours.
I was busy doing other stuff.

Zippy marinade.

Into a baggie in a bowl.
Can never be too careful.

Youngest Hawthorne expertly grilled these.
There's just something about grilled meat.
Love that flavor!
Serve with chopped peanuts and cilantro.

Excellent meal.
Meat was moist and flavorful.
Marinade went throughout meat.
Loved the peanuts and cilantro.
Use parsley if you're in the anti-cilantro camp.
