Soy-Ginger Chicken Breasts


  • 3 teaspoons Asian (dark) sesame oil
  • 2 (3/4-pound) bone-in chicken breast halves, skinned and cut crosswise in half
  • 5 scallions, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons grated peeled fresh ginger
  • 1 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 3 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons red-wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 5 teaspoons honey


  1. Heat 2 teaspoons of the sesame oil in a large nonstick skillet set over medium-high heat.  Add the chicken and cook until browned, 3-4 minutes on each side.  Transfer the chicken to a plate; set aside
  2. Add 4 scallions and 1 tablespoon of the ginger to the skillet; cook, stirring constantly, until fragrant, about 1 minute.  Add broth and 2 tablespoons of the soy sauce; bring to a boil.  Reduce the heat and simmer, covered, 4 minutes.  Add the chicken and return to a gentle simmer; cook, covered, until cooked through, about 12 minutes.  Remove the skillet from the heat; set aside 10 minutes.  With a slotted spoon, transfer the chicken to a platter, discard the pan liquid.
  3. Combine the remaining 1 teaspoon of sesame oil, scallion, 2 teaspoons of ginger, 1 tablespoon of soy sauce, and the vinegar, cilantro, and honey in a small bowl.  Serve with the chicken.
