There’s just something about grilled chicken that makes me smile. Not really sure why but I love it. I’m always looking for new ways to spice up the blank canvas that is chicken. Garlic ginger grilled chicken is the latest addition to my palette.

Yucatan grilled chicken. A little bit of sunshine next time you grill. Big, bold, bright tastes. Citrus. Achiote. Chili. Mustard. Garlic. What’s not to love? It’s dead easy as well. Just combine all the ingredients in the blender. Marinate the chicken. Grill. Smile.
Tandoori chicken tacos. People are making all sorts of funky tacos these days. Korean bulgogi tacos. Japanese teriyaki tacos. Thai shrimp tacos. Why not Indian tandoori chicken tacos?
Chicken tikka is the perfect way to get maximum tandoori flavour into the smallest possible form factor. Forget shredding tandoori chicken. Tikka are little flavour bombs waiting to be wrapped in a tortilla. Smothered in a cooling yoghurt drizzle. Brightened with a bit of cilantro and lime. Perfect!
A good home-style Indian curry is a wonderful thing. Chettinad chicken curry is a South Indian curry rich that hits all the right notes. Coconut milk, spices, chili and curry leaves come together to make a complex, satisfying meal. Like your mom used to make. Well, like my mom used to make anyway.
Next time you want to mix up your summer grilling, try Thai grilled chicken with sweet chili sauce. Smoky, sweet and spicy, it’s a south-east asian flavour explosion.
