    Asian-style BBQ Chicken (Gluten-Free)

    Reviewed and edited by a celiac disease expert.

    This Asian-style barbeque chicken makes a great summer treat. Barbecue chicken is a perennial summer favorite around these parts, and this recipe delivers barbecue chicken with a decidedly Asian flare.


    • 1-2 pounds chicken thighs and drumsticks, skinless
    • ⅓ cup dark brown sugar, packed
    • ⅓ cup gluten-free soy sauce
    • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
    • 1½ tablespoons vegetable oil
    • 1 tablespoon Sriracha hot sauce
    • ½ teaspoon sesame oil
    • ¾ teaspoon Garam Masala (or curry powder)
    • 1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger
    • 4 cloves garlic, minced
    • 3 scallions light and dark green parts only, thinly sliced

    Garam Masala Spices

    • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
    • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
    • 1 teaspoon ground cardamom
    • ¾ teaspoon ground black pepper
    • ¾ teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • ⅓ teaspoon ground cloves
    • ⅓ teaspoon ground nutmeg

    Seal in a jar and use as needed.

    In a medium bowl, mix together all of the ingredients except for the chicken and scallions.

    Set ¼ cup of the marinade aside and cover (you'll use this later for the sauce), then place the rest in a zip-lock freezer bag with the chicken thighs.

    Be sure the chicken is evenly coated with the marinade, then place the bag in the refrigerator (in a bowl in case of leakage); let marinate for 3-4 hours.

    Heat grill to high heat.

    Grease the grill lightly, and place the chicken on the grill; cover and cook 3-5 minutes on each side, or until nicely browned and done.

    Transfer the chicken to a serving platter, then top with the reserved marinade and sliced scallions.
