Recipe: Grilled Sesame-Ginger Chicken

This is by far my favorite recipe so far.....absolutely delicious!!! This was so good we may be eating it at least once each week for a while! The recipe could not be easier and it was quick too! I served the chicken with cooked rice and salad.

Grilled Sesame-Ginger Chicken

2 tbsp low-sodium soy sauce
2 tbsp honey
1 tbsp toasted sesame seeds
2 tsp minced peeled fresh ginger *
4 (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
Cooking spray
Sliced green onions (optional)

1. Prepare grill. 2. Combine first 4 ingredients in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk.** 3. Place each chicken breast half between 2 sheets of heavy-duty plastic wrap; pound to 1/2-inch thickness using a meat mallet or small heavy skillet (this step is not so important.) 4. Place chicken on grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 5 to 6 minutes on each side or until chicken is done, basting occasionally with sesame seed mixture. Place on a serving platter; garnish with green onions, if desired. Serve immediately. YIELD: 4 servings

* definitely use fresh ginger, the taste can't be beat
**I would make extra sauce to drizzle over your rice!
