Ginger Spice Chicken


Have you ever gone about your day then realized you forgot to marinade the chicken you planned on having for dinner?  That happened to me yesterday, but for once I wasn’t worried.  Thinly sliced chicken breasts can marinate in as little as 30 minutes, and then cooks in 5 minutes.  What a time saver!  It also helps that the flavor is quite delicious.


Ginger Spice Chicken
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp ginger, minced
2 garlic cloves, minced
juice and zest of 2 limes
2 tbs orange juice
2 tbs dijon mustard
3 tbs olive oil
salt and pepper
1.5 lb thinly sliced chicken breast

In a bowl add cloves, cinnamon, coriander, ginger, garlic, lime juice, lime zest, orange juice, dijon mustard, olive oil, salt, and pepper.  Mix to combine then pour into resealable plastic bag.  Add chicken to plastic bag then seal and shake to evenly coat the chicken.  Let marinate for 30 minutes -1 hour.

Heat grill pan to high heat.  Once hot add chicken cook for 2 -3 minutes per side then serve.
