This is an easy chicken dish, especially for the inexperienced chefs.....

May I introduce you to the incredible chicken thigh!  This baby is extremely difficult to mess up!  It is a dark meat section of a chicken, which means it is always going to be more juicy and flavorful than a white meat section.   Even if you overcook it, it will still taste delicious!

All I did was mix 2 teaspoons of fresh ginger, 3/4 teaspoon sea salt, 1/2 teaspoon pepper, 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg, 1/4 teaspoon cinnaomon, 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice.  I mixed all of this in about a 1/2 cup of mayonaise.  I coated the chicken and let it sit at room temperature for about 30 minutes.  Then it was off to the grill....

Honestly, chicken is the friendliest meat to cook!   The key is to season it enough to be able to taste it!  There isn't a spice that doesn't go well with chicken......

I cooked a couple of bags of edamames, seasoned them with freshly ground pepper and sea salt to go with it.  Perfect!

Don't ever forget that everything tastes good as long as it is seasoned well.  You should be able to taste flavors!  If you add garlic, you should be able to taste it!  If you want to taste teriyaki, then you need to add enough sauce to the marinade.   You get my drift.... Don't be affraid to add enough!  It's all trial and error!  Once you find your sweet spot with the seasoning, you are golden!
