  1. In a small microwave-safe bowl, combine the soy sauce, oil, honey, ginger root, and garlic. Heat in microwave on medium for 1 minute, then stir. Heat again for 30 seconds, watching closely to prevent boiling.
  2. Place chicken breasts in a shallow dish. Pour soy sauce mixture over, and set aside to marinate for 15 minutes.
  3. Preheat a grill for medium-high heat. Drain marinade from chicken into a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, and simmer over medium heat for 5 minutes. Set aside for basting.
  4. Lightly oil the grill grate. Cook chicken on the prepared grill 6 to 8 minutes per side, or until juices run clear. Baste frequently with remaining marinade. Chicken will turn a beautiful golden brown.

THIS WAS WONDERFUL. I WILL MAKE IT AGAIN. I DID HOWEVER SUBSTITUTE 1 t GINGER POWDER SINCE I HAVE NEVER USED GINGER ROOT BEFORE.

Wow. That's all I can say. I followed the recipe exactly, except that I ended up adding green onions to the chicken. I cooked it in a skillet with a tbsp of oil over high heat. It is sooo goo...

The whole family loved it.. and I mean the WHOLE family all 9 of us! So far this has been the summer grilling favorite! The longer you marinate the better it taste! I definatly recommend poundin...

Great and easy recipe. I added a little brown sugar also. I made it with "Betsy's Mandarin Orange Salad" and "Sesame Broccoli Salad" all very good.

This had a subtle, nicely balanced flavor, but only after I fiddled with the marinade a bit. First, I used about half the amount of soy sauce called for. I know how it can permeate delicately ...

This marinade was such a hit! My boyfriend and his son declared it the best chicken they ever had. He said it put his own grilled chicken to shame (and his is really good!). We liked it so mu...
