    Grilled Chicken with Sesame-Ginger Sauce

    1/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
    2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
    1 Tbsp peanut or canola oil
    1 clove garlic, minced
    1 serrano chile or jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced
    2 tsp minced fresh ginger
    1/2 tsp ground cumin
    6 boneless skinless chicken breasts (1 1/2 - 1 3/4 lb)

    1. In a large plastic bag, combine soy sauce, lemon juice, oil, garlic, chile, ginger and cumin. Add chicken and seal bag. Place in a shallow dish and marinate in the refrigerator, turning once or twice, for at least two hours or overnight. (I did it overnight- makes a big difference).

    2. Preheat grill (broiler)

    3. Remove chicken from marinade and discard any remaining marinade. Grill chicken until opaque in the center, about 5-7 minutes per side.

    4. To serve, thinly slice chicken and top with Sesame-Ginger sauce.

    Makes 6 servings

    Sesame-Ginger Sauce

    1 tsp canola oil
    1/2 cup minced fresh ginger (this seems like so much. I used half of this)
    2 to 3 tsp sugar
    1/3 cup water
    1/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
    1/4 cup rice vinegar
    1 Tbsp toasted sesame oil
    2 scallions, trimmed and thinly sliced.

    1. In a saucepan, heat canola oil over medium heat. Add ginger and sugar and cook, stirring, until softened, 3 to 5 minutes (Add a little water if the mixture seems dry). Remove from heat and add 1/3 cup water, soy sauce, vinegar and sesame oil. Transfer to a small bowl, cover and refrigerate overnight.

    2. Strain sauce through a fine sieve into a small serving bowl. Stir in scallions and serve.
    Makes about 3/4 cup
