Food as MedicineSM TipFor centuries, honey has been used in the topical treatment of wounds.
Culinary Taste TipThe flavor of honey is determined by the type of flowers the bees use when collecting pollen.
Culinary Technique TipWhen honey is added to a marinade there is a chance of it burning during grilling. Adding it to the reserved marinade for a dipping sauce is a sweet solution to the problem.
Ingredients3 tablespoons oyster sauce
2 teaspoons fresh ginger, minced
1 teaspoon chili garlic sauce or puree
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each), organic preferred
1 tablespoon dark honey
1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
PreparationPrepare charcoal or gas grill or preheat your oven's broiler. Combine oyster sauce, ginger and chili garlic sauce; mix well. Transfer 1 tablespoon of the mixture to a small bowl; set aside. Spread remaining mixture over both sides of the chicken; let stand 5 to 10 minutes.
Grill or broil chicken for 4 to 5 minutes per side or until chicken is cooked through. Meanwhile, add honey and soy sauce to the reserved oyster sauce mixture; mix well. Serve as a dipping sauce for the chicken.
SubstitutionsBottled minced ginger root may replace the fresh.
