Ingredients

  • 1 Tablespoon Sesame Oil
  • 1/4 Cup Soy Sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon Honey or confectioners erythritol (note 1)
  • 1 Tablespoon Ginger grated
  • 2 Garlic minced
  • 1 Teaspoon Sriracha (note 2)
  • 1 Tablespoon Rice Vinegar
  • 4 Pound Chicken Breast boneless + skinless (note 3)

Instructions

  • Add sesame oil (1 tablespoon), soy sauce (1/4 cup), honey or erythritol (1 tablespoon), ginger (1 tablespoon), minced garlic (2), sriracha (1 teaspoon), and rice vinegar (1 tablespoon) to a large resealable bag. Seal the bag, and swirl ingredients around to combine. Add chicken, seal bag, and toss ingredients so the chicken is coated.
  • Place in the fridge for 30 minutes - overnight (the longer you marinate, the more flavorful your chicken will be).
  • Heat grill/pan to medium-high heat and brush with oil. Add chicken to pan/grill and cover with lid. Cook on this side for 7 minutes. Flip the breasts, then cover and cook on the second side for another 5-7. You'll know the chicken is done once the internal temp has reached 165 F.
  • Remove chicken to a plate and loosely tent with foil. Rest chicken for 10 minutes before slicing. Garnish with green onions, and enjoy!

Notes

  1. Sweetener: confectioners erythritol is a great low carb/keto sub here!
  2. Spice: Add more, or skip depending on how much spice you like.
  3. Chicken: I usually slightly flatten the chicken with the smooth side of a meat mallet before resting it in the marinade to infuse even more flavor.
  4. For oven baking: Preheat the oven to 450 F. Place chicken on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake in the oven for 13-15 minutes.
  5. The best way to not overcook your chicken is to use a meat thermometer!
