Ginger-Lime Chicken

Need a new marinade for your grilled chicken routine? Well stop looking, cause you found it. This chicken is marinaded in soy sauce, ginger,garlic, and citrus.I’m going to use the left over chicken to make chicken taquitos probably featured in a later post down the week. :)

I got tired of posting nutrition info for every post, but don’t worry. If you like low fat recipes you can still come here. I’ll post one that’s low in calories every once or twice a week. Just cause. No, really. One of my favorite magazines is Cooking Light and I will stop by the Weight Watchers website every now in then and look for a new recipe to try. Usually, I find quite a few there.

Ingredients from Weight Watchers

1 chicken breast per serving (4 oz breasts)

1/4 cup(s) low-sodium soy sauce
3 Tbsp fresh lime juice
2 tsp lime zest, finely minced
2 Tbsp ginger root, finely minced or grated   2 clove(s) (medium) garlic clove(s), minced

1/4 cup(s) cilantro, fresh, chopped, divided
1 pound(s) Chicken, breast, raw, without skin & bone, four 4 oz pieces
1/8 tsp sugar
2 Tbsp scallion(s), finely minced

Directions

In a large non-reactive bowl, combine soy sauce, lime juice, lime zest, ginger, garlic, honey, oil and 2 tablespoons cilantro; mix well. Add chicken to bowl, tossing to make sure each piece is coated; refrigerate for 2 to 4 hours.

Preheat broiler to high. Remove chicken from marinade and place in a baking dish; strain marinade and set aside. Broil chicken, 4 to 6 minutes; flip and brush chicken with reserved marinade (discard any remaining marinade). Return chicken to oven and broil until chicken is cooked through, about 4 to 6 minutes more.

To serve, sprinkle chicken with scallions, remaining 2 tablespoons cilantro and any sauce accumulated in baking dish. Yields 1 chicken breast and about 1/3 cup sauce per serving.
