  • Estimated Cost $13.00

It’s easy to rely on versatile, healthy and relatively inexpensive chicken when you’re cooking on a budget…it’s also easy to get sick of it.

Well, I never get sick of this preparation of my good old standby, the boneless, skinless chicken breast. It is (and I hate to sound corny, but it’s true) lip-smackingly delicious. I love to slice these and then serve them atop lightly dressed spinach with toasted almonds and sliced strawberries for a gorgeous and filling full-meal salad.


  • 1/4 cup soy sauce Pantry
  • 1/8 cup hoisin sauce $1.50 for 10 oz.
  • 2 tbsp Asian sweet chili sauce $2 for 10 oz.
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar Pantry
  • 2 tbsp toasted sesame oil $2 for 8 oz.
  • 4 cloves garlic, finely minced Pantry
  • 1 small (1" piece ginger, peeled and minced (about 1 tbsp) $0.50
  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts $5
  • vegetable or olive oil for grill pan Pantry
  • 2 scallions, sliced $1 for a bunch
  • toasted sesame seeds for garnish $1 for 1/8 cup

Recipe Serves 2


  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together soy sauce, hoisin, Asian sweet chili sauce, sesame oil, garlic and ginger.
  2. Place chicken in a resealable gallon-size plastic bag. Carefully pour marinade in, seal and move bag around to ensure marinade covers both pieces of chicken. Place bag in the refrigerator for at least 20 minutes and up to 2 hours.
  3. Lightly brush a grill pan with oil and heat over medium-high heat. Grill chicken until fully cooked, about 3-4 minutes on each side.
  4. Garnish with scallion slices and sesame seeds.
