In this video, Chef John shows you how to make a sweet-and spicy, garlicky marinade for delicious grilled chicken. You simply mash up garlic, chile paste, soy sauce, mayonnaise, rice vinegar, and, for a hint of sweetness, maple syrup. Chef John prefers chicken thighs here, because they stand up to an assertive marinade and stay moist and tasty after a smoky charred grilling. But chicken breasts will also work great, of course. Chef John will also dish some smart tips for grilling your chicken perfectly. Watch the video, then get Chef John’s recipe for Rusty Chicken Thighs. Mmm, so juicy, delicious, and gorgeous. Serve with lime wedges if you like. See more Chef John videos >>

I have a question for you. I just listen to the recipe about the Rusty Chicken Thighs, and I was just wondering if this done with George Forman grill, of course is this is a inside grill, plus led comes down. I would appreciate if you could/would let me know. Also, need the length of time. Thanks
