Grilled Soy Chicken Thighs with Honeydew Relish
  • 4 chicken thighs (skin-on, boneless, pounded 1/4-inch thick)
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 cups honeydew melon (skin removed, small dice)
  • 3 tablespoons fresh cilantro leaves (chopped)
  • 2 tablespoons red onion (peeled, minced)
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper (to taste)
  • Preheat a grill or grill pan to medium-high heat.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the soy sauce and mustard. Add the chicken thighs to the marinade, gently tossing to coat. Put the chicken on the grill and cook for 2 minutes, occasionally basting it with the leftover marinade. Flip the chicken and close the lid, or if using a grill pan, cover the pan, and continue grilling until cooked through, about 3 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine the honeydew, cilantro, red onion, lime juice and olive oil. Season with salt and pepper and toss to combine.
  • Put the chicken on plates, top with the honeydew relish, and serve.
  • Tip: 1. Try this marinade with steak or pork as well!
  • 2. Wrap a brick in foil and place in a 400ºF oven. Place the brick on top of the chicken as it is cooking to cook faster.
