GINGER GARLIC CHICKEN

1/3 cup (75 mL) oil
2 tbsp (25 mL) grated fresh ginger
4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
4 tsp (20 mL) soy sauce
1 1/2 tsp (7 mL) grated lemon peel
1/2 tsp (2 mL) turmeric
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts

To prepare marinade, combine all ingredients except chicken in a small bowl. Reserve
1/4 cup (50 mL) marinade to serve with chicken; set aside. Pour remaining marinade into a heavy zip-lock plastic bag. Add chicken and squeeze bag to coat chicken with marinade; seal bag. Let stand 30 minutes. Remove chicken from marinade; discard marinade. Grill chicken over medium heat on natural gas barbecue for 12 - 15 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. Transfer chicken to a serving dish and drizzle with reserved marinade. Serves 4.

Cook's Note: If desired, use two 1 inch (2.5 cm) thick turkey fillets in place of chicken breasts.
