sesame ginger chicken breasts

i made this chicken dish last night for dinner with my parents. it was easy to make, light, and healthy-and there was nothing left over, which i took as a good sign!

for marinade (to marinate 4 organic chicken breasts)

  • a nice sliver of fresh ginger, finely minced
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely minced
  • 2 tbs toasted sesame oil
  • freshly squeezed juice of 1 lime (or 1/2 lemon)
  • 1 small bunch finely chopped cilantro-keep some leaves for garnish
  • 2 tbs soy sauce (or liquid aminos for gluten free)
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes
lightly score (criss cross superficial cuts in the top of the chicken breasts-see below) four organic chicken breasts, spoon the marinade over them, and marinate [allow them to rest in the mixture]  for about an hour. bake on a baking sheet in the oven at 350 degrees, lightly covered with foil for about 25 minutes, then remove the foil and bake uncovered for an additional 10-15 minutes. garnish with fresh cilantro. make sure the chicken is fully cooked through.
