I’ve been enjoying the flavor of ginger in many meals and recipes lately. I’ve even been adding an organic dried ginger to my morning shake. Ginger is excellent for digestion, is a delicious, cleansing ingredient, and can reduce inflammation. It adds some great flavor to the chicken thighs along with the other ingredients of the marinade. We hope that you enjoy this recipe as there are still a lot of grilling days ahead of us!

Mangiare, Piaccia! Eat, Enjoy!
