Ok, on the what you’ve been waiting for:  A new way to prepare that chicken breast!  Are you like me?  Sometimes you get tired of the way your fixing chicken breasts.  We eat them a lot at my house.  Probably at yours too.  They are low in fat, a great source of quality protein.  On the bad side, if not prepared well, they can be dry and chewy.  They need to be cooked through to a high temperature (165°F. on a meat thermometer), but don’t overcook them.  Try to be gentle.  The Lemonade Chicken is an easy marinade, with an asian flare with the ginger root and lemon peel.  Give it a try!

Lemonade Chicken

Ingredients:

  • 1 (6 ounce) can of frozen lemonade concentrate
  • 1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 2 teaspoons fresh ginger, peeled and coarsely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

Directions:

Combine the lemonade concentrate with soy sauce, garlic, ginger, lemon zest, paprika, salt and pepper in a blender and blend until smooth.  Rinse and dry the chicken breasts and place them in a resealable plastic bag.  Reserve a 1/2 cup of the marinade for basting.  Pour the rest of the marinade over the chicken, seal the bag and mix to coat all pieces.  Allow the chicken to marinate for at least 1 hour in the refrigerator, turning over about half way through.  For even more flavor, do this the night before and let them marinate over night.

Preheat grill to high heat.  Remove the chicken from the bag and discard the marinade.  Place the chicken on the hot grill.  Turn the grill down to medium-high heat.  Cook the chicken for 10 minutes on each side, basting occasionally with reserved marinade.  Grill until the breasts have an internal temperature of 165°F.  Makes 4 servings.  Enjoy!

Try serving this along with my Japanese Fried Rice on the side.
