24 May

No need for stress or flavor-lacking meals when you can whip up this asian-inspired Spicy Teriyaki Chicken Salad!¬† Eat things like this and your bathing suits will warmly welcome you to wear it ūüôā¬† This recipe¬†reflects¬†1¬†serving.¬†

Ingredients:

For the Chicken:

    • 1- 5 oz. chicken breast, cut into bite-sized pieces¬†( I love Perdue’s Perfect Portions to keep it reasonable portion-wise.)
    • Kikkoman Low Sodium Teriyaki Sauce
    • Kame Sriracha Sauce
    • 1 TBSP Olive or Vegetable Oil

For the Salad:

    • 2-3 cups of salad mix.¬†(I recommend Dole’s Greener Selection mix with its crisp mixture of romaine and iceberg lettuce.)
    • Apprx. 1/2 of a¬†red pepper, chopped
    • Handful or so of sugar snap peas, raw
    • 1/2 cup canned mandarin oranges in pear juice, drained
    • 1-2 TBSP Almond Accents Honey Roasted Almonds (40 calories/ 1 TBSP.¬† I used a little more than 1 TBSP, but less than 2.)
    • 2 TBSP Ken’s Lite Asian Sesame Dressing

Directions:

1. Place bite-sized chicken pieces in a shallow dish and add 2 parts of your teriyaki sauce to 1 part of your Sriracha sauce.  It should cover the chicken and allow for an additional thin layer of marinade in the dish.  Throw it in the fridge for about a half hour.

 

 

 

 

 

 

2. Meanwhile, rinse your salad mix to refresh and drain.  Add red pepper, sugar snap peas, and mandarin oranges. 

3. In a medium-sized saucepan, heat your oil on a medium-high heat.  Add your marinated chicken and cook thoroughly, about 5 minutes.   

 

 

 

 

 

 

4. Add chicken to your assembled salad followed by your almonds and dressing. 

5. Toss and enjoy!
