Chicken Breasts with Ginger Barbecue Sauce

Total time: 30 minutes
     When we serve chicken breasts, rather than put the whole breast on the plate we prefer it sliced.  Thinly sliced, at an angle, it seems to be more succulent.  Any remaining sauce is perfect for dipping. (Remember to separate the basting sauce, from the dipping sauce - leftover basting sauce should not be used - raw meat and all that)

Chicken Breasts with Ginger Barbecue Sauce Ingredients:


Note: Remove 2 - 3 tbs barbecue sauce to use for basting rather than dipping the basting brush or spoon into that entire sauce.
