Grilled Sweet and Spicy Sticky Chicken Breasts

What you need:

  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons chilli sauce
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch

  • 2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

In a bowl, combine soy sauce, brown sugar, honey, chilli sauce, garlic powder, ground ginger, onion powder and black pepper. Whisk until smooth. Heat in the microwave for 3-4 minutes. Place chicken in a re-sealable plastic bag and pour half of the sauce over the meat. Marinate for 4 hours. Meanwhile, take 2 tablespoons of the remaining sauce and mix with cornstarch in a small bowl until smooth. Whisk back to remaining sauce then microwave for 2-3 minutes. When chicken is ready, cook in a pre-heated grill over medium high heat until cooked to desired doneness, brushing with prepared sauce while cooking.

What you need:

  • 4 salmon fillets
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Mix together onion, garlic, soy sauce, vinegar, maple syrup, olive oil, red pepper flakes, ginger, sesame oil and salt in a large bowl. Stir until ingredients are well-combined. Place salmon fillets in a large re-sealable plastic bag. Pour about 1/4 of the marinade in the bag, seal and turn to coat fish with marinade. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, also refrigerating the remaining marinade. When fish is ready, remove from bag and discard excess marinade.
