Ginger and lemon add sparks to everyday chicken breast in an easy South Beach Diet marinade. Phase 1 never tasted so good.
INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
- 1 1/2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
- 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 2 cloves garlic
- 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
Combine the lemon juice, ginger, pepper, and garlic in a small bowl. Place the chicken breasts in a deep bowl. Pour the ginger mixture over the breasts, turning once to coat both sides. Cover, and refrigerate for 30 minutes to 2 hours.
Spray a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Heat the skillet on medium-high until hot. Add the chicken. Cook, turning once, until tender, about 8 minutes.
