Sesame Ginger Chicken

Soooo easy! And soooo delicious, too. ;)

Prep: 10 minutes
Marinate: 1 hour to overnight
Cook: varies
Servings: 4

Ingredients
  • 4 large garlic cloves, minced

  • 3 tablespoons minced or grated fresh ginger root

  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes

  • 2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil

  • 1/4 cup (untoasted) sesame oil

  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar

  • 1/3 cup tamari (soy sauce)

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, sliced into "chicken tender" sized pieces


Directions

Combine all ingredients except the chicken. Pour marinade over chicken in container. Cover and refrigerate until ready to cook.

Stovetop: Using tongs, remove chicken to skillet. Pour marinade over chicken in skillet. Cook on medium-high, covered, for 15-20 minutes, turning chicken once or twice. Remove cover and simmer on medium to medium-low until most of marinade has reduced to about half the original volume, turning chicken pieces often.


Garlic Rice

This is delicious all by itself, and is a perfect side dish for this chicken.

Prep: 5 minutes
Cook: 40-50 minutes
Servings: 4

Ingredients
  • 1 cup brown rice

  • 6 cloves garlic, peeled and thinly sliced lengthwise

  • 2 cups water


Directions

Rinse rice several times. Place in saucepan and heat, stirring constantly, until water has evaporated and rice just begins to smell warm and nutty. Add garlic and water. Stir and bring to a boil, immediately lower heat to the lowest simmer you can get on your stove, and cover the pan. Do not remove the cover! When your timer goes off you may lift the cover slightly to see if the water seems to be completely absorbed, and remove a few grains to check for doneness. Try to be as quick as possible so you don't let out any extra steam. If done, remove from heat, leave covered for 5 minutes, then fluff with a fork. If not done, let cook another few minutes and check again. You will eventually figure out exactly how long your particular stove takes!

You can do this with white rice, too; cooking time will be 15-20 minutes.


Tonight's Salad

Play with the ingredients to suit you!

Prep: 7 minutes
Servings: 4 very generous servings, probably 6-8 regular servings

Ingredients
  • 1 tablespoon plus 2-1/4 teaspoons rice vinegar

  • 2-1/2 teaspoons tamari (soy sauce)

  • 1 tablespoon plus 1-1/2 teaspoons honey

  • 1/2 teaspoon grated fresh ginger

  • 1 clove garlic, grated

  • 3/4 teaspoon Huy Fong Chili-Garlic Sauce

  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil

  • 2 tablespoons plus 2-1/4 teaspoons salad oil

  • 1 teaspoon lightly toasted sesame seeds

  • 5 ounces mixed salad greens - I prefer a half-and-half baby spinach/spring mix

  • 4 white mushrooms, stemmed and thinly sliced

  • 1/2 of a red bell pepper, thinly sliced

  • 2 thin slices of red onion

  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro


Directions

Combine first 9 ingredients in a jar. Shake well. Heating the honey slightly can help it mix better. Toss with remaining ingredients in a large bowl.
