This recipe is a big hit with my children so I make it a lot during the summer. And it's a light (97 calories, 4 g fat per serving) and EASY which makes it even better.

  • 2T lemon juice
  • 2T reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2t honey
  • 1t ground cumin
  • 1t ground coriander
  • 1/2t ground ginger
  • 3/4 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into thin strips


In a bowl, combine the oil, lemon juice, soy sauce, garlic, honey and seasoning;mix well. Pour 1/4 cup marinade into a large resealable plastic bag; add the chicken. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for at least 3-4 hours. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade.
