Sesame & Lime Chicken

I've been trying out a few recipes recently and my husband and I believe we've discovered a real treat - sesame & lime chicken. We've tried it in a couple of different ways, serving it with rice, noodles and even a spicy couscous - and all have been scrummy. The recipe is also very low in fat, bonus!

2 chicken breasts, diced
4 garlic cloves, crushed
1 inch of fresh root ginger, finely grated
4 tablespoons soy sauce
zest & juice of 2 limes
2 teaspoons sesame oil

1. Place the garlic, ginger, soy sauce, lime zest & juice and sesame oil in a bowl and add the chicken breasts. Toss the chicken in the marinade and leave for at least 30 minutes.
2. Remove the chicken from the marinade, place on skewers and grill for 4-5 mins. Alternatively, stir fry and serve with rice, noodles or couscous.
3. Heat the leftover marinade in a small pan until boiling and drizzle over the chicken before serving.
4. Enjoy!
