Asian Barbecue Grilled Chicken

The brown sugar, coconut aminos, fresh garlic and ginger, lime juice and garam masala add a complex flavor and subtle sweetness to this twist on a traditional barbecue sauce. Sliced scallions scattered over top after grilling are a nice touch, and you can serve it with steamed rice or rice noodles on the side.
