  • 1/4 cup(s) low sodium soy sauce   
  • 3 Tbsp fresh lime juice   
  • 2 tsp lime zest, finely minced   
  • 2 Tbsp ginger root, finely minced or grated   
  • 2 clove(s) (medium) garlic clove(s), minced   
  • 1 Tbsp honey   
  • 1 Tbsp chili oil, or other hot oil   
  • 1/4 cup(s) cilantro, fresh, chopped, divided   
  •   1 pound(s) uncooked boneless skinless chicken breast(s), four 4 oz pieces   
  •   2 Tbsp uncooked scallion(s), finely minced   


  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
