Excellent marinade! I doubled the marinade sauce except for the sesame oil, which I kept the same, at 4 tsp. The sesame oil already has a strong flavor so I did not want it overpowering all of the other ingredients. I normally don't add slices of ginger to a marinade, I grate the fresh ginger root for a more ginger flavor in the sauce. To the sauce I added 3 cloves of garlic, crushed and also diced. I did not heat up the sauce in a pot as I chose to put it in a ziplock bag. Lastly I added about 2 to 3 Tablespoons of the honey, to taste. I did not want it too sweet but enough to balance out the other ingredients. I poked holes in the thickest part of the chicken breasts with a fork and placed the chicken in the bag to marinate all day. Instead of grilling, I threw them into a casserole dish along with the sauce. I baked the chicken at 400 degrees for 25 minutes. Very easy to put together with mouth watering results! I had tender, juicy chicken breasts. The meat was not dry or tough. The sauce was so delicious and balanced with a hint of ginger-not overpowering at all. I poured the sauce all over my rice - that is the way I like it. To complement my meal, I served this with, "Betsy's Mandarin Orange Salad," and "Sesame Broccoli Salad," all from this website, (all tasty salads by the way).
