Asian Style Marinated Chicken

Harris Farm was having a really good deal for chicken tenders - $5.99/kg
So I thought I'd try out this marinade (if it really sucked I wouldn't feel SO bad). Turned out quite nice actually. Nothing spectacular but the chicken had a nice zing to it.

The Marinade

We had this with rice and green vegies

Bren's Asian Style Marinated Chicken
For the marinade:
3 cloves of garlic
1 tablespoon grated ginger
1 teaspoon sesame oil
4 tablespoons peanut oil
2-3 chillies
1 tablespoon soy sauce
juice of 1/2 a lime
Roughly 400g chicken (I used chicken tenders, but you could use drumsticks)

Mix everything together.
You could cook it straight away but best to let it marinate for about an hour.
It should only take 3-4mins to cook chicken tenders in a pan (shall vary if you use another cut).
Serve it with boiled rice and some fresh steamed vegetables.


  1. Sounds delicious! I love chicken with a little bit of a zing :)

  2. That is a super deal on the chicken - about half the price I've seen them for here.

  3. Hi Betty - Thank you!

    Hey Maggie - Yum indeed : ) and so simple too

    Hey Cakelaw - Yes, I should have bought more and froze it...but alas I only have so much freezer space : )
