Grilled chicken can seem like such a ho-hum contribution to the buffet table, but there is
a way to make cheap, quick-cooking poultry taste brand new. It's simply a matter of saucing. You can start with any kind of chicken, from boneless breasts to chunks of thigh meat threaded on skewers, then grill or cook it in a grill pan. As soon as you remove it from the heat, "paint" the chicken with this wonderfully fragrant but not too spicy mixture of ginger, coriander, turmeric, salt, cayenne, cardamom and melted butter. One more reason this is such a winning potluck dish: You can serve it hot or cold.
