  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 1-1/2 pounds)
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 tsp sesame seeds toasted
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup fresh tangerine juice plus:
  • 5 pinches tangerine peel 5 half-inch strips
  • 6 tbsp honey
  • 4 each Garlic cloves minced
  • 3 whole Fresh scallions ends trimmed, white part minced, green part thinly sliced for garnish
  • 1 tablespoon Ginger root minced
  • 1 oz cinnamon stick 1 whole cinnamon stick


  • Wash and dry the chicken breasts and trim off any fat or sinew. Cut the breasts into halves.
  • Combine the ingredients for the marinade/glaze in a mixing bowl and whisk until the honey has dissolved. Arrange the chicken breasts in a glass baking dish. Pour half the marinade on top. Marinate the chicken breasts in this mixture in the refrigerator for 1 to 2 hours, turning several times.
  • Prepare the glaze: Place the remaining marinade in a saucepan and boil until thick and syrupy, about 3 minutes. Strain the glaze into a small bowl.
  • Just before serving, preheat the grill to high.
