“I like to slice the chicken into strips and serve them on a bed of salad greens on hot summer days. The chicken is great for cold sandwiches to take to work, too.” Eileen Rande - Farmington Hills, Michigan

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup unsweetened apple juice or apple cider
  • 1/3 cup lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 4-1/2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, combine the first six ingredients. Set aside 1/3 cup juice mixture. Add oil to the remaining juice mixture; pour into a large resealable bag. Add the chicken. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for at least 4 hours. Cover and refrigerate reserved juice mixture.
  2. Coat grill rack with cooking spray before starting the grill. Drain chicken and discard marinade. Grill, covered, over medium heat for 5-7 minutes on each side or until juices run clear, basting occasionally with reserved juice mixture.
