Asian Grilled Chicken and Corn is another grilled chicken recipe that is full of Asian flavors. This dish is easy to prepare and best served for lunch.
You can use any type of grill when preparing this dish except for grill pans. Since chicken leg quarters are thick, it will need enough heat and the proper grill to cook properly. I also suggest that you marinate it for at least 6 hours or longer so that the chicken will absorb the flavor.
Aside from corn, Asian Grilled Chicken can also be enjoyed with steamed white rice. I encourage you to use a meat thermometer whenever you grill poultry so that you can be sure that the meat is cooked well. This will eliminate the risk of gastrointestinal distress or related issues.
