  • I use the dried powders for onion, ginger and garlic in this recipe. I also use only dried herbs. I find the flavor is better for this grilled chicken. If you don’t have any of them, you may substitute with fresh ingredients but be carful on the grill, as the fresh ingredients tend to burn easily.

Key Ingredients: Chicken, Spices, Dried Herbs, Salt, Pepper, Olive Oil.
