Asian Marinated Chicken

DSCN1666

This asian marinated chicken recipe is an easy dish to make.

Best of all, it’s a great way to mix things up when you’re sick of regular, bland chicken breasts and want to keep it healthy, flavorful and delicious.

Ingredients:

2 lb. boneless skinless chicken breast, trimmed
1/4 cup reduced sodium soy sauce
1/4 cup pineapple juice
1 tbsp. brown sugar
1 tbsp. honey
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 tsp. ginger
2 green onions, chopped
1 tsp. red pepper flakes

Directions:

  1. For each chicken breast, trim and put saran wrap over it and pound it out with a meat mallet just so the thickness was the same on every piece (this way it cooks for evenly), then cut each breast in half.
  2. For the marinade, combine all ingredients except the chicken in a medium size bowl and whisk together until fully combined. Set aside.
  3. Once you have the chicken prepped, place it in a large ziploc bag or a shallow dish and pour marinade over chicken and set in the fridge for at least 6 hours (overnight if possible).
  4. When ready to cook, turn on grill to medium heat. Cook chicken for 15-20 minutes (depending on size of the chicken it may take a few minutes more or less), flipping after about 7-10 minutes.
