Asian Glazed Chicken

Today’s recipe is a marinated chicken with an Asian blend of spices and sweetness to meld into a sweet heat.  You can use almost any piece of chicken for it although I am recommending boneless breasts and thighs.  Chicken thighs make an economical meal for a family on a budget. Serve the Asian chicken with rice and the marinade sauce. Garnish with herbs or chopped green onions.
