Barbeque Garlic Chicken
Going to Saturday Market is an exciting Summer activity for my husband and me. Especially to Lake Oswego’s Farmers Market, which opened May 18th and run through October 12th. Not as expansive as the Portland Saturday Market but it is much closer and less crowded. We graciously accept vender’s offerings A.K.A. samples.
We found fresh garlic at organic produce stand. The aroma of fresh garlic is alluring even before opening the husk. How about garlicky chicken tonight? My husband agrees. Lucky to have an easy-going husband.
Ingredients and how to for super easy Garlicky Chicken
Necessary equipment: Barbeque grill or Hibachi grill. You could broil it in the oven as well.
- Chicken thigh is recommended but breast meat works too. Remove bones for easier consumption but not necessary. 1 per person.
- Garlic 1 clove for each thigh. Grated or minced.
- Sake - depend on how many you’re barbequing but I used 1 Tablespoon for 3 thighs.
- Soy sauce (read above) 1 Tablespoon
- Sea salt 1 teaspoon
- Fresh grind black pepper – a lots
- Put chicken thighs in large bowl. Add rest of ingredients and rub well into chicken then let it rest for 15 minutes. Add 1 teaspoon of olive oil if using breast meat.
- When the barbeque is hot, start grilling. When the one side has grill marks then flip over to grill the other side. If you have an instant food thermometer, use it to check the temperature. When it reaches 165F, chicken is safe to eat.
- Serve with lemon juice.

Cheesy tiny three balls for $3. It was good but definitely over priced.After waffling for a bit, we bought cashew butter for $6.Salt and Straw Ice Cream was our last stop. $2.75 for a kid scoop each. Awesome! Great weather for ice cream.

Wildlife photographer Dan Elster’s works are impressive. Really nice fellow too. I bought one of his photos in greeting card format for $4 – that I can afford.
