Spice and citrus unite in this Caribbean-influenced recipe. Turn down the heat with peanut oil instead of hot oil if you prefer.

Ingredients

Chicken Breast: 1 pound(s), four 4 oz pieces

Fresh Lime Juice: 3 Tbsp

Lime Zest: 2 tsp, finely minced

Root Ginger: 2 Tbsp, finely minced or grated

Honey: 1 Tbsp

Scallions: 2 tbsp, finely minced

Cilantro: ¼ cup(s), fresh, chopped, divided

Chili Oil: 1 Tbsp, or other hot oil

Instructions

  1. In a large non-reactive bowl, combine soy sauce, lime juice, lime zest, ginger, garlic, honey, oil and 2 tablespoons cilantro; mix well. Remove and reserve 2 tablespoons of the marinade. Add chicken to bowl, tossing to make sure each piece is coated; refrigerate for 2 to 4 hours.
  2. Preheat broiler to high. Remove chicken from marinade and place in a baking dish; discard marinade. Broil chicken, 4 to 6 minutes; flip and brush chicken with reserved marinade. Return chicken to oven and broil until chicken is cooked through, about 4 to 6 minutes more.
  3. 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.
