Asian Chicken, more or less

I was playing around with spices one day, and ended up with a decent marinade to coat chicken breasts and grill (or sautee)

I used (all approx, wasn't measuring at the time; use judgement):
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 1/2 tsp minced garlic
- 1/4 tsp tumeric
- 1/4 tsp cumin
- 1/4 tsp ginger (ground fresh if available)

This is enough for about 4 medium-sized breasts; let it soak for a little while, and grill. Pretty easy, and adds a fantastic flavor.

Comments and suggestions for improvements are welcome.

Add some pineapple juice and a touch of sesame oil. Yum!

Not a bad idea! I'm an absolute pineapple fanatic, could live on the stuff.

If you can find some Chile-Garlic paste, use that, and drop the minced garlic out of the marinade. That is, if you like spicy. Definitely add the sesame oil, just a bit. Pineapple juice is great as well.
