Garlic Chicken on Rice

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by shells75

I got this out of a Taste of Home magazine years ago. It's still a favorite. I only use a teaspoon of ginger even when doubling, and when I double I only use 1/4 cup lemon juice. I'm making it tonight and am going to experiment by adding a can of chopped mushrooms and some peas, but this is the original recipe and it's great as is. **I am adding this since last review.....this is the original recipe but yes...I agree two teaspoons of ginger is way too much! I think 1/2 tsp would be plenty.

We really enjoyed this recipe served with recipe#92627, A wedge of steamed cabbage & rice. It is a definite do again and again recipe. I doubled the recipe but left the lemon juice at 1/4 cup and the honey at 2 tbsp the other ingredients were doubled. I marinated the chicken for 5 hours. Excellent, tender, delicious chicken
