Dinner ready in just 30 minutes! Add a pungent flavor to regular chicken with ginger which can be served with lemon slices and green onions.

Ingredients

4
boneless skinless chicken breast halves
2
teaspoons ginger
1/3
cup water
1/2
teaspoon grated lemon peel
3
tablespoons lemon juice
3
tablespoons honey
2
tablespoons orange juice
2
teaspoons cornstarch

Directions

  • 1 Rub chicken breast halves with ginger. Spray large nonstick skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Heat over medium-high heat until hot. Add chicken; cover and cook 8 to 12 minutes or until chicken is fork-tender and juices run clear, turning once during cooking.
  • 2 Meanwhile, in small microwave-safe bowl, combine all remaining ingredients; blend well. Microwave on HIGH for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes or until sauce has thickened.
  • 3 To serve, spoon sauce over chicken. If desired, serve with lemon slices and green onions.
Tips  

Sautéing the chicken breasts in ground ginger gives this dish a pungent ginger flavor.

Garnish this recipe with lemon slices and green onion brushes. To make the brushes, see the Make It Special note on page 83.

Leftover Lemon-Ginger Chicken makes an excellent cold Asian salad. Slice the chicken and serve it over mixed greens; make a dressing using rice vinegar, soy sauce, minced green onions, sesame oil and a pinch of sugar. Sprinkle toasted sesame seed over the salad.
