Grill up some chicken and toss it on a bed of wilted spinach for a new meal to add to your list of family favorites!


2 garlic cloves, minced
1⁄4 cup less-sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon Sunny Select Honey
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 11⁄4 pounds)
1 tablespoon white sesame seeds
11⁄2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil
11⁄2 tablespoons grated peeled fresh ginger
1 package (3.5 ounces) sliced shiitake mushrooms
11⁄2 cups shredded carrots
1 package (10 ounces) baby spinach
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice


Prep: 15 minutes plus marinating
Cook/Grill: 20 minutes
Serves: 4

Prepare outdoor grill for direct grilling over medium heat. In small bowl, whisk together garlic, soy sauce and honey. Place chicken in large zip-top plastic bag; pour soy sauce mixture over chicken. Seal bag and refrigerate 15 minutes to marinate.

Meanwhile, in small nonstick skillet, toast sesame seeds over medium-low heat 3 minutes or until golden brown, stirring frequently; transfer to plate.

Remove chicken from marinade; discard marinade. Place chicken on hot grill rack and cook 10 to 12 minutes or until chicken loses its pink color throughout and internal temperature reaches 165°, turning once halfway through cooking. Transfer chicken to plate; keep warm.

Meanwhile, in large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium- high heat. Add ginger and cook 1 minute, stirring frequently. Add mushrooms and carrots and cook 4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add spinach and cook, covered, 2 minutes. Stir in lemon juice.

To serve, evenly divide spinach mixture over each of 4 dinner plates. Slice chicken and place over spinach mixture; sprinkle with sesame seeds.
