STICKY ASIAN GRILLED CHICKEN BREASTS

INGREDIENTS:
  • 2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 2 teaspoons ground pepper
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon sweet chili sauce(found in the international section of the grocery store)
  • ⅔ cup reduced sodium soy sauce
  • ⅔ cup balsamic vinegar
  • ⅔ cup brown sugar
  • ⅔ cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 4 Chicken Breasts

DIRECTIONS:
  • In a dish, whisk together the ginger, pepper, and onion powder.
  • Add the garlic and mix again.
  • Add the wet ingredients and brown sugar, whisk to combine.
  • Heat the saucepan to medium heat and bring the sauce to a boil.
  • Once it starts boiling, whisk the cornstarch and water together in a small dish and add 1 tablespoon of the hot liquid.
  • Stir together and then while whisking in the saucepan, slowly drizzle in the cornstarch mixture.
  • Whisk until it comes back to a boil and then turn to medium low and allow to simmer until it begins to reduce and thicken.
  • This can take up to 10 minutes, or as little as 1-2 minutes.
  • Remove from the heat and set aside to cool completely.
  • Meanwhile, place chicken breasts in a ziploc bag and store in the fridge until the sauce is cool.
  • Once cool, pour half of the sauce in with the chicken and marinate for 1 hour or overnight for ultimate flavor.  *See note for freezer instructions.
