Ingredients

  • 1/3 Cup lemon juice
  • 1/3 olive oil
  • 2 Tablespoons honey
  • 2 Tablespoons minced onions
  • 1 Teaspoon cumin
  • 1 Teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/2 Teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 Cup cinnamon
  • 1/2 Teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1/2 Teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 Pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts

Directions

Mix all ingredients except chicken in medium bowl. Reserve 2 tablespoons marinade for brushing.

Place chicken in large resealable bag. Add remaining marinade and turn to coat well. Massage chicken and marinade for 4 to 5 minutes. Remove the chicken from the marinade. Discard any remaining marinade.

Grill chicken over medium heat for 6 to 7 minutes per side or until cooked through, brushing with reserved marinade. Discard any remaining marinade.

Grill Shopping Tip

Think twice before buying a thicker piece of meat; a 2-inch thick steak takes four times (not twice) as long as 1-inch thick steak to cook.

Grill Cooking Tip

If you're cooking something that's been marinated, make sure to pat the item dry before it hits the grill. Any sugar in the marinade will burn.
