The Grill Continued

Had some charcoal and a few beers left over and that's just the makings for a July 6th cookout.

Hoisin and Lime-Marinated Grilled Chicken


1/4 cup hoisin sauce
1 tablespoon grated peeled fresh ginger
2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
1 teaspoon grated lime rind
2 teaspoons dark sesame oil
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
8 garlic cloves, minced
6 (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
Cooking spray
Combine hoisin sauce, ginger, and next 5 ingredients (through garlic) in a large zip-top plastic bag. Add chicken to bag; seal. Marinate in refrigerator for 2 hours, turning bag occasionally.

Prepare grill.

Remove chicken from bag; discard marinade. Place chicken on grill rack coated with cooking spray, and grill for 5 minutes on each side or until chicken is done.

6 servings (serving size: 1 chicken breast half)

No, that isn't chicken in the picture. In the above recipe substitute Pork Loin where it says chicken.
Cooking time approx (3) beers.

"H" practiced his whittling skills while dinner grilled. I was sidelined from this activity due to the above mentioned (3) beers
And as usual "Cider" layed around waiting for something interesting to happen.
