Marinate chicken thighs in a mixture of garlic, lemon and oregano. Bake on a grill pan with slices of lemon for a citrusy punch. This flavor combination is light and flavorful that goes well with almost any side dish.
Indian cuisine is known for its bold flavors and strong spices. Try tossing chicken legs in a mixture of curry, turmeric, cumin and garam masala for a powerful dish. Try eating these with a side of grilled pita or naan.
Add some spice to your chicken by rubbing breast meat with a cayenne and pepper blench. Then create a foil tray and cook chicken atop sliced jalapeno and red onion. The flavors of the pepper and onion will seep into the chicken meat as it bakes. Add a sprinkle of lime at the end to balance out the flavors and add another dimension to your dish.
Create a glaze by mixing hoisin and soy sauce together. Toss chicken wings in the glaze, and bake them on the grill. Once cooked, top with sliced green onion and black sesame seeds.
