Be sure to allow for two pieces of this delicious, oriental grilled chicken, per person. The combination of sweet agave syrup, exotic chinese spices, garlic and smoke flavors will have them asking for more.

Ingredients

3 Tbsp
soy sauce
1 Tbsp
lime flavored ponzu sauce
1 1/2 tsp
oyster sauce
1/2 tsp
liquid smoke flavoring
4 tsp
chinese five spice powder
4 tsp
fresh garlic, finely minced or pressed
4 tsp
crytallized ginger, finely minced
1 1/2 tsp
rice wine vinegar
3 Tbsp

1 tsp
sesame oil

MEAT (YOUR CHOICE):

chicken breast halves, skinless and boneless

Step-By-Step

1Add all marinade ingredients to pint jar; cover jar with tight lid; shake well. Refrigerate until needed. May be made up to several weeks in advance. Shake well before each use.
2Place each piece of chicken between 2 sheets of plastic wrap; pound with flat mallet until 1/2 to 3/4 inch thick.
3Place meat in bowl/dish or zipper bag; add enough marinade to generously cover meat. Refrigerate and allow meat to marinate for 1 to 2 hrs.
4Preheat preferred grill to medium/medium-high temperature (George Foreman grill, indoor grill pan, or outdoor grill.)
5Drain and discard marinade from chicken.
6Place each piece of chicken on preheated grill, cover with lid or foil, and cook over medium/medium-high heat for approximately 1 1/2 to 2 minutes per side (may take less time on indoor grill that cooks from both top and bottom, such as a George Foreman.) If less charring is preferred, pat chicken dry with paper towels after draining off the marinade.
7Cover and refrigerate leftovers. Never reuse marinade that has contacted raw meat.
