Instructions

  1. Mix all the marinade ingredients together and rub onto the chicken breasts. Let marinate in the fridge for a 1/2 hour while you make the Honey Dijon Glaze.

To make the Honey Dijon Glaze

  1. Simmer the honey, mustard,vinegar, ginger, salt and chicken stock together in a small saucepan for about 10 minutes before thickening with a slurry of 1 rounded teaspoon of corn starch dissolved in 3 or 4 tbsp water. Simmer for only about a minute after adding the thickening, stirring constantly.
  2. Grill the chicken until fully cooked, brushing it with the glaze several times in the last few minutes of cooking time. Slice the cooked chicken and serve it on the prepared salad. Serve remaining glaze over the chicken.
