Food Safety

Before you start, wash all surfaces and your hands with soap and warm water, and remember to wash your hands, utensils and cutting boards after they touch raw meat or eggs. Avoid cross-contamination by using a different cutting board for your meat and other ingredients. Make sure you’re cooking to safe temperatures and chilling any leftovers within two hours. For more food safety tips, visit our Food Safety at Home Section.


  1. Combine canola oil, cumin, turmeric, basil, mint, cilantro, ginger, garlic, soy sauce, lime juice and honey in a food processor, and puree.

  2. Marinate chicken breast in refrigerator for 2 hours.

  3. Brush grill with oil. BBQ chicken until internal temperature reaches 165°F(74°C), about 6 minutes each side. Place chicken in Kaiser roll, garnish with cilantro and serve with arugula.

Helpful Tip

When I make this I usually make 1½ times the marinade. I reserve some of the marinade before adding the chicken and then use it in the last few minutes of grilling, or just brush it on after for extra flavour.‬
