Because John and I are such faithful Southerners, we -had- to have a grill when we moved to France. So, we have a very small electric grill on our balcony that is super hot on one side, cool on the other, doesn't have a lid, and is generally a pain. But it works and cooks our steaks, chicken breast, pork chops, and cheeseburgers! (Oh, I will be so happy when we return to charcoal!)
We have been grilling quite a bit this summer so I have created a couple of new marinades. This one is a particular favorite and so, I share!
Spicy Chicken Marinade
*Good for 2-3 chicken breasts
- 2 to 3 tablespoons Soy Sauce (Low sodium if available)
- 2 good sized pinches of Crushed Red Pepper
- 1 to 1 1/2 tablespoons Sesame Oil
Cook these 3 ingredients in the microwave for 20 seconds
- 2 Tablespoons of Honey
- 1 Clove of garlic (Chopped finely or use a garlic press)
- a few "zips" of lemon zest
Stir well, let cool, put in Ziploc bag with Chicken. Let it marinate for at least 1 hour. Grill and Enjoy! Yum!
John and I also like to use these chicken breasts for sandwiches. Whole wheat buns, lettuce, tomato (for John, not me!), red onion, Swiss cheese, and honey mustard dressing! Delicious!
