Asian Grilled Chicken

With the weather being so nice lately, I wanted to take advantage and grill out. This was sooo good! I planned on marinating it over night but when I went to put it all together, I realized I was missing one of the main ingredients-the terriyaki sauce. So needless to stay, I sent the hubby out the next day to pick some up. It was still awesome after only marinating for 3 hours. We both loved it and will be making it again. It is perfect for a summer evening meal. I served it with steamed rice and grilled corn on the cob.

Servings: 6 servings
Points: 3.3 ww points

6 thin boneless skinless chicken breasts (3 oz each) ( I used 3 big breasts since that is what I had)
2 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp toasted sesame seeds
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tsp fresh ginger, peeled and minced
2 green onions, minced
1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
1/4 cup teriyaki sauce
1 tsp honey
2 tsp sesame oil ( I used peanut oil)
Combine all marinade ingredients in a small bowl. Pour the mixture over the chicken, turn the pieces to coat evenly, cover and place in refrigerator a minimum of three hours, but preferably overnight.
Preheat grill to high. Grill chicken top side down first until well browned charred, about 5 minutes, turn and cook on the second side about 3 more minutes. Transfer to a serving platter. Enjoy!
