Honey Teriyaki Lemon Zest Chicken

Tasty, low fat, low sodium, all around healthy dish!

  • 1 Chicken Breast
  • 1/4 c Low Sodium Teriyaki Sauce
  • 2 Tbsp Natural Honey
  • 1 tsp Spicy Mustard
  • Lemon Juice (to taste)
  • Sea Salt
  • Cracked Pepper

Chicken Breast:
pound the chicken breast so that it's about 1/4 inch thick throughout. Cut in half.
Sauce: mix teriyaki sauce, honey, mustard, and lemon juice in a small cup. If you like your sauce more tangy, add more lemon juice; less tangy, less juice.

Next, rub sea salt and cracked pepper into both sides of the chicken breast. Place in a zip lock baggie, add sauce, and refrigerate for at least 30min (the longer, the better!). Place chicken on grill or in oven until cooked. Pair with brown rice and steamed veggies (zucchini, broccoli, carrots, snow peas) for a delicious Asian inspired, healthy dish. (serves 2)


  1. Yum! I made orange chicken a few days ago. Homemade is better because you can cut out a lot of fat that way. I didn't even fry the chicken. :)

  2. You and your yummy recipes hit again! I love anything with lemon... put teriyaki in there and I'm sold!
