Pro tip: Marinating the chicken breast a day or two in advance lets it absorb the rich ginger and garlic flavors. 


  • 1 tsp ginger paste
  • 1½ tbsp garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • juice of 4 lemons
  • 1 cup water
  • 4 6-oz chicken breasts
  • 1 cup uncooked brown rice
  • 3 tbsp dried cranberries


  1. Combine all ingredients through water in medium bowl. Add chicken. Cover and chill 24–48 hours.
  2. To prepare, preheat grill or broiler. Cook chicken evenly on both sides, basting with rest of marinade.
  3. Cook rice according to package directions. Add cranberries at the end. Mix well. Serve alongside chicken breast.
