Oven Broiled Chicken Breasts


You can never have enough Chicken recipes! Chicken makes for an easy, everyday meal. As an alternative to the oven, try grilling the marinated chicken breasts.


4 pieces boneless and skinless half chicken breasts (about 2 pounds)

Marinade:
2 or 3 cloves garlic
2 teaspoons finely grated fresh ginger root
2 tablespoons hoisin sauce*
2 tablespoons soy sauce (Kikkoman brand)
2 tablespoons rice or cooking sherry wine

Preparation:
Crush, peel and finely chop the garlic. Peel and finely grate the ginger root. In a medium size bowl, mix the marinade ingredients together. Add chicken breasts to the bowl and coat each piece with the sauce. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours or longer.

To Cook:
Preheat oven to broil. Line a large flat pan with tinfoil (for easy cleanup). Arrange marinated chicken breasts in pan and pour remaining sauce over the chicken breasts. Place the pan in the oven on the top rack. There should be approximately 4 inches of space between the heat and the rack. Leave the oven door ajar, about 3 inches. Broil the chicken breasts for 8 minutes on one side then turn the chicken breasts over. Broil for another 7 to 8 minutes. The chicken breasts should be light brown on the outside, tender and juicy inside.

Makes 4 servings
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Marinating time: 2 hours
Cooking time: 15 to 16 minutes

*Hoisin sauce is a sweet brown sauce made from soybeans.  Sold in jars or bottles at the Asian section of most supermarkets.  After opening it can stored for several month in the refrigerator.
