I'm posting this for Liz at Crossroads! (Liz--I hope this fits the bill for what you were looking for). It looks easy, tasty and foolproof. From Tasty: Get Great Food on the Table Every Day by Roy Finamore. (Can be easily halved).

Directions

  1. For the marinade: Whisk the soy, lime juice, oil, sugar, ginger, and garlic together in a small bowl. Pack the chicken pieces into a large sealable plastic bag and pour inthe marinade. Close the bag and let the chicken marinate on the counter for 1 hour. (My note--this is counter to common food safety practices, so I would suggest not leaving it out longer than that!).
  2. Position a rack near the middle of the oven so the chicken will be about 8 inches from the heating element, and heat the broiler. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Arrange the chicken pieces on the baking sheet--skin up and thicker pieces in the middle of the pan--and slide the pan under the broiler.
  3. Broil for 10 minutes. Turn the pieces over and broil for another 10 minutes, or until done (juices run clear when pierced with a fork).
  4. Meanwhile, for the dipping sauce: Melt the butter in a small skillet or saucepan over low heat. Add the lime juice and a big pinch of crushed red pepper.
  5. Roll the chicken pieces in the lime butter. Transfer to a platter and serve.
