Sweet and Spicy Chicken Marinade

This was so delicious I forgot to take a photo after it was grilled! It has just the right amount of sweetness and spiciness.

Ingredients

½ to 1 lb. chicken breast, boneless and skinless
1 garlic clove, sliced
2 teaspoons fresh ginger, grated
2 tablespoons butter, melted - I used Smart Balance buttery spread
2 tablespoons pure honey or other low-sugar liquid sweetener
1 teaspoon Tabasco
¼ teaspoon kosher salt

About ¾ lb. chicken in marinade before grilling


Combine all marinade ingredients. Place chicken in marinade and marinate in fridge at least 30 minutes. I marinated ours for a couple of hours. Turn chicken once or twice during process, if desired.


To grill, place chicken on preheated grids and cook until done, about 5 to 6 minutes per side, depending on the size of chicken pieces. To roast in oven, preheat oven to 425°F. Lightly spray a baking sheet with cooking spray, and cook until done, about 35 minutes. Flip chicken after 20 minutes, if desired.

Enjoy! Please feel free to share this post.
