Ginger-Marinated Grilled Chicken

Ginger-Marinated Grilled Chicken

Serves 6

Although ginger takes the lead in this simple chicken dish, it gets its bold flavor and fragrance from Dijon mustard and ground coriander and cumin, too. Serve alongside veggies and quinoa or rice for a well-balanced meal.

  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 5 1/2 tablespoons champagne vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons grated ginger
  • 2 teaspoons ground coriander
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 6 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves

Put oil, vinegar, mustard, ginger, coriander, cumin, salt and pepper into a wide, shallow baking dish and whisk to combine. Transfer 1/4 cup of the marinade to a small bowl and set aside. Arrange chicken in dish, turning to coat all over with marinade. Cover dish and refrigerate for 24 hours. (Refrigerate reserved 1/4 cup marinade as well.) Grill chicken over medium heat, basting with reserved marinade, until chicken is cooked through, about 10 minutes.
