Honey Grilled Chicken Breasts

"From Parade Magazine, May 16, 1999. I had this in my recipe box all this time and never got around to making it. It's got OJ and lemon juice too, soy sauce, garlic, ginger...an Asian style. Marinate overnight to get full flavor."

  • Combine all ingredients, except for the chicken, in a large bowl.
  • Add the chicken and toss well in the marinade to coat.
  • Cover and marinate from 4 hours to overnight in the refrigerator, turning occasionally.
  • Bring to room temperature before grilling.
  • Grill 3 inches from the heat source, 4-5 minutes per side or until cooked through. *Be careful when grilling skinless chicken breasts that they don't dry out.

  1. This was a delicious recipe. I used chicken breasts and then marinated them over night. The flavor was soo good. Next time though, I think I will make a separate batch of the marinade and try reducing it so I can glaze the chickens as they cook.
  2. Our family loved this. The taste of ginger made it different than things I usually cook.


<p>I've collected recipes since I was a teen. After all these years I'm trying to get all my index cards and clippings, that still sound interesting to me, posted here so that I can find them and eventually make them! <br /> <br />I've posted some of my Mom's recipes. I regret not having paid more attention to my Grandmothers' cooking. They made some dishes that I miss and there were/are no recipes for them. <br /> <br />I have a wonderful DH and 2 wonderful sons. They are thrilled that I found this site since they directly benefit from it! Before finding 'Zaar, I was less of a cook and more of a recipe collector but now I try many more things and we're having more fun in the kitchen (at least I am)! <br /> <br />Thanks for all your ratings, comments and help in the forums AND for posting so many great recipes. You've enhanced my cooking skills and expanded my horizons! I've learned so much. <br /> <br />For fun, I also like to read fiction, travel, see movies and shows, shop (and I love to browse thrift shops and rummage/garage sales for cookbooks, etc.). <br /> <br />The discovery of a new dish does more for the happiness of mankind than the discovery of a new star Brillat-Savarin</p>
