Think of this dish as teriyaki chicken with a South Asian twist, or India meets the other flavors of Asia. For chicken, you will need boneless, skinless chicken thighs. I know some people prefer white meat, but I hope you will try the thighs, they are juicier and tastier than boneless chicken breasts, which makes them much better for the bold flavors of this dish. The marinade is a simple mixture of soy sauce, brown sugar, fresh lime juice, oil, garlic, ginger and spices. What makes it unique is Garam Masala, a mixture of Indian and South Asian aromatic spices containing cinnamon, coriander, cardamom, cumin, nutmeg, mace, grains of pepper and cloves.
