Yummy Honey Chicken

Ingredients:
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup honey
1/3 cup soy sauce
1/4 tsp black pepper
chicken breast halves
2 cloves garlic

In a large bowl, whisk together the oil, honey, soy sauce and pepper. Before adding chicken, reserve a small amount of marinade to brush onto chicken while cooking. Place chicken and garlic in the bowl and marinade in the fridge at least two hours (the longer the better). Preheat the grill for high heat. Drain the marinade from the chicken and discard. Lightly oil the grill grate. Place the chicken on the grill; cook for 12-15 minutes, or until chicken juices run clear. Turn and brush with reserved marinade frequently.

What I did differently from the recipe:
We added the garlic in the very beginning with everything else. We also only marinated it 15 minutes because we were starving to death. It definitely had an incredible flavor even after only that long.

What I'll do differently next time:
No changes to the recipe, but this would be great as kabobs with some bell peppers and pineapple I think - or whatever you want to add.

Verdict: Thumbs up!
