Had an informal house party yesterday, and one dish that i was particularly proud of was the grilled chicken dishes. They weren't my own creations though i did add and change a coupla things here and there. Here're the marinades that i used.

1) The Raptors Favourite BBQ Chicken (from Chef and Home! Asian Food Channel webbie)

Lemon Juice (but i sub-ed it with lime juice)
Worchestershire sauce
Red bell peppers (skipped this)
Red wine vinegar
Brown sugar
Dijon mustard
Hot sauce (i used sweet chilli sauce)
Chilli powder
Ground cumin
Olive oil
Minced garlic (i used some leftover garlic, lime, ginger blend instead that we had from the last chicken rice meal my family cooked)
Chicken thigh meat
Extra ingredient just for fun: Tomato sauce

2) Famous People Players Honey Garlic Chicken (from Chef and Home also)

The same garlic, ginger, etc blend that i mentioned
Orange juice
Chopped onion
Dried thyme
Dried rosemary
Sweet chilli sauce
Chicken thigh meat

I didn't get to eat much of this (was busy cooking the other stuff during the party) but i did manage to grab a small chunk of meat. It was SO TASTY! Even my sister who has a discerning tongue said it was nice. Umm, yum. :)

I apologize for the lack of measurements because i usually go the anyhow tikum way. Before i actually mix the marinade with the raw meat, i mix the stuff in a separate bowl so that i can add and mix stuff till i get the desired flavour. When i'm satisfied, the mixture then goes in with the chicken into a box to leave to marinade... I let it soak for almost 2 days. The result: Pure Delight!
