Grill Roasted Honey Ginger Chicken #SundaySupper

This is special and very appropriate #SundaySupper for me. The Mom 100 Cookbook by Katie Workman coincides perfectly with my own history in the kitchen. Katie's aim is to get kids in the kitchen, to get them trying new foods, without making it too difficult for the cook. Preparing the Honey Ginger Chicken recipe, I thought, Boy could I have used this cookbook when my boys were young!

Moreover, today is special because my mother would have turned 81 today. An amazing cook, lover of new recipes, and family dinner supporter, mom would have endorsed the Sunday Supper Movement without doubt. Being at the family dinner table was a rule in our house for family members and visitors alike. Dinner was at 5:00 and everyone was eating!

Adoring cooking for others, my Mom’s is known for asking, “Are you hungry?” and immediately following up with the answer, "Eat more!” As kids, the three of us were always in the kitchen with Mom, helping and learning. In fact, my brother is USCMC retired and an excellent cook. He’s big on preparing the traditional Italian dishes mom used to make and does the grilling at home too.

Of course, when I became a mom I followed her example. My boys spent time in the kitchen with me and we had a blast. When they were teens, our house was the hang out. We had huge dinners and lots of kids in the kitchen back then. Many a problem was solved Around the Family Table. Still today, my sons enjoy cooking. It's not uncommon for Red to ask a recipe question via text. I could go on forever about the importance of cooking and dining with our kids. I miss those days and my mother. Happy Birthday Mom. Thank you for teaching us the value of #SundaySupper!

After viewing Katie's Honey Soy Ginger Chicken at The Weekend Gourmet, I just knew I had to prepare it. What's more, Wendy broke down the recipe, making the portions perfect for our family of two. With no kiddos at the table now, I added a bit of heat and the grill roasting to accommodate our tastes.

Honey Ginger Chicken

Spicy Honey Ginger Chicken

  • 2 lbs boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • 1/2 cup honey( room-temperature)
  • 4 Tbsp low sodium soy sauce
  • 2 Tbsp hot pepper sauce
  • 4 - 5 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 cup fresh ginger root, minced
  • 2 -3 green onions
Cooking Directions
  1. Combine the honey, soy sauce, hot pepper sauce, minced garlic, and ginger root in a small bowl.
  2. Place the chicken thighs in a grill safe pan or cast iron fry pan lined with foil. Pour the honey ginger sauce over the chicken, turning to coat completely ending with topside down. Topside being the side that would have been covered with skin. Sprinkle with green onions. Cover and refrigerate for at least four hours or overnight.
  3. Remove the pan from the fridge at least 30 minutes before grilling.
  4. Heat the grill to at 400. Place pan on center grate, close lid and allow the grill to reach 350. Adjust the heat to maintain temperature. (I set my dials to medium heat) Cook the chicken thighs for 15 minutes.
  5. Open the grill, uncover pan, turn the chicken and baste with sauce. Increase the temperature slightly to maintain 375. Continue to cook for an additional 15 - 20 minutes.
  6. Remove from the grill, baste with sauce, cover and allow to rest for 10 minutes. Serve topped with extra sauce.
Oh my gosh this chicken was awesome. Not only was it very easy to prepare, less the fresh ginger all of the ingredients were on hand. The heat in contrast to the sweet was perfect for our family taste. The chicken was moist and the sauce thickened up nicely after resting. Less the hot pepper sauce, my guess is children would definitely enjoy this chicken.
