2 TBSP pure maple syrup
1 TBSP reduced sodium soy sauce
2 tsp lemon juice
1 clove garlic minced
1 tsp minced fresh ginger
1/4 tsp fresh ground pepper
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Whisk syrup, soy sauce, lemon juice, garlic, ginger and pepper in a small dish and transfer to a Ziploc bag. Add chicken and marinate anywhere from 2 hours to overnight.
Remove chicken and grill on medium heat, approximately 6-8 minutes on each side or until thermometer in the thickest part of the breast reaches 165 degrees. While the chicken is grilling, put reserved marinade in a small sauce pan and cook over medium heat until it is reduced by half. Baste chicken liberally with reduced sauce and serve. I served with rice and veggies.
