“A delicious, healthy, and easy to prepare recipe from From "EatingWell Magazine" (March/April 2007). This dish serves 2, but can easily be either cut in half for one person or doubled for more. Recipe takes only a few minutes to throw together but it does require 2 hours to marinate. Of course, if you have an outdoor grill, you can use it.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Whisk syrup, soy sauce, lemon juice, garlic, ginger and pepper in a small, shallow dish. Add chicken and turn to coat with the marinade; cover and refrigerate for 2 hours, turning once.
  2. Coat an indoor grill pan with cooking spray and heat over medium heat. Remove the chicken from the marinade (reserving the marinade) and cook until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the breast registers 165°F, 3 to 5 minutes per side.
  3. Meanwhile, pour the reserved marinade into a small saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Cook until reduced by about half, about 4 minutes. Liberally baste the chicken with the reduced sauce and serve.
