Time 28m

Yield 4 servings

Number Of Ingredients 17

3/4 cup pure maple syrup, eyeball the amount
1/3 cup dark soy, Tamari, eyeball the amount
1/2 cup sweet hot mustard, eyeball the amount
1/2 cup sesame seeds, a mix of black and white or all white
1/4 cup vegetable oil, 3 or 4 turns of the pan, total
1 1/3 pounds chicken breast tenders
Salt and pepper
1 1/2 inches fresh ginger root, grated or minced
3 tablespoons rice vinegar, 3 generous splashes
1/4 cup Chinese duck sauce or, apricot all fruit spread
1/4 cup vegetable oil, eyeball the amount
5 to 6 ounces mixed baby greens, 1 bag
1 /4 English or seedless cucumber, halved lengthwise then thinly sliced on an angle
1 /2 cup shredded carrots, a couple of handfuls
4 scallions, thinly sliced on an angle
1/4 pound snow peas, sliced on an angle
Fried Chinese noodles for garnish, perhaps leftover from take out, optional

Steps:

  • Combine syrup, soy and sweet hot mustard in a bowl. Season chicken tenders with salt and pepper on both sides. Add chicken tenders to 1/2 of the marinade and coat. Set aside. Reserve the remaining 1/2 for dressing.
  • Preheat a large nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Spread sesame seeds on a sheet of waxed paper or into a shallow dish. Waxed paper will speed your clean up. Dip the tenders into the sesame seeds. Coat the pan with a thin layer of oil. Cook chicken in small batches 3 minutes on each side and remove to plate.
  • Whisk ginger, vinegar and the reserved marinade together then stream in the oil while you are continuing to whisk dressing.
  • Combine all of the salad ingredients in a bowl. Toss with dressing and serve, topping with sesame chicken tenders. Toss some crunch into your salad with fried noodles, if you have any leftover packets from ordering Chinese take out, for the last time!

SESAME-SCALLION CHICKEN SALAD



Sesame-Scallion Chicken Salad image

This reimagined chicken salad is lighter and leafier than your standard picnic lunch. Tender poached chicken, crisp greens, cukes, and scallions get tossed with a sesame dressing that takes its cues form gomae, a Japanese spinach salad.

Yield 4 servings

Number Of Ingredients 13

2 skinless, boneless chicken breasts (1-1½ lb. total)
3 Tbsp. kosher salt, plus more
3 scallions, thinly sliced on a deep diagonal
3 Persian cucumbers
½ cup toasted sesame seeds, divided
2 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
2 Tbsp. tahini
1 Tbsp. soy sauce
1 tsp. honey
¼ tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
¼ head of romaine or green or red leaf lettuce or 1 head of Little Gem lettuce
Big handful of cilantro leaves with tender stems
½ lime (for serving)

Steps:

  • Bring chicken, 3 Tbsp. kosher salt, and 5 cups water to a bare simmer in a medium pot over medium heat (chicken should be submerged). Be patient-this will take a little while. Once liquid begins to simmer, reduce heat to low and cook (water should not be simmering at all now) until juices run clear when thickest part of chicken is pierced, 8-10 minutes. Transfer chicken to a medium bowl; discard poaching liquid. Let chicken sit until cool enough to handle, then shred meat into big pieces; set aside.
  • Meanwhile, place scallions in a small bowl and pour in very cold water to cover; let soak 10 minutes.
  • Drain scallions in a mesh sieve or colander, then rinse under cold running water, swishing vigorously to rinse and to encourage them to curl up. Shake off as much water as possible and place in a large bowl; set aside.
  • Working one at a time, slice cucumbers in half crosswise, then slice each piece in half lengthwise. Place quarters cut side down and slice in half lengthwise again to create 8 pieces total per cucumber. Add to bowl with reserved chicken.
  • Set 1 Tbsp. sesame seeds aside in a small bowl for serving. Crush remaining sesame seeds in a mortar and pestle until some of the seeds have turned to powder, but with plenty of whole seeds left. (Alternatively, you can pulse seeds a few times in a food processor or spice mill, then transfer to a medium bowl before proceeding). Add lime juice, tahini, soy sauce, honey, and red pepper flakes and mash to create a paste. Add ¼ cup water and whisk to combine (if you don't have a small enough whisk, work in with the pestle). Taste and season with salt.
  • Add lettuce and cilantro to bowl with reserved scallions. Pour half of dressing over and toss to coat. Arrange on a platter. Pour remaining dressing over chicken and cucumbers, toss to coat, and arrange over greens. Top salad with reserved 1 Tbsp. sesame seeds and squeeze juice from lime half over.

Categories     Salad

Time 40m

Yield 12

Number Of Ingredients 15

1 tablespoon olive oil, or to taste
3 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breasts
salt and ground black pepper to taste
1 cup olive oil
7 tablespoons white vinegar
6 tablespoons soy sauce
3 tablespoons minced fresh ginger
3 tablespoons light brown sugar

2 teaspoons crushed red pepper, or to taste

Steps:

ASIAN SESAME CHICKEN SALAD



Asian Sesame Chicken Salad image

Provided by Food Network

Categories     main-dish

Time 30m

Yield 4 servings

Number Of Ingredients 14

1/3 cup peanut oil
2/3 cups sesame seeds
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, 5 to 6 ounces each, pounded evenly to about half their original thickness
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 small head Chinese cabbage
1 (2-inch) piece fresh ginger
2 tablespoons fish sauce or soy sauce
2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil
1 lime
2 (8-ounce) cans sliced water chestnuts
6 scallions
1 medium red bell pepper
10 sprigs cilantro

Steps:

  • Put the peanut oil in a heavy skillet large enough to hold all the chicken in 1 layer without crowding. Put the skillet over medium-low heat. Spread the sesame seeds on a pie plate or waxed paper. Season the breasts with salt and pepper and press into the sesame seeds to coat both sides evenly. Put in the skillet, raise the heat to medium-high, and cook for 5 minutes on each side, gently turning the breasts with a spatula, until the meat is firm and no pink shows in the middle. Reduce the heat if needed to prevent burning.
  • Meanwhile, trim the bottom 1/2-inch from the cabbage and remove any damaged or withered parts from the tops of the leaves. Cut crosswise into strips no more than 1/2-inch wide. Put into a salad spinner, fill with water, drain and spin the greens dry. Remove any excess moisture with paper towels.
  • Peel and halve the ginger. Drop down the chute of a food processor with the motor running and puree. Stop the motor and scrape down the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula. Add the fish sauce, vinegar, and sesame oil. Juice the lime and add the juice to the ginger mixture. Process until the dressing is combined. Add salt to taste.
  • Open the can of water chestnuts and drain. Trim the scallions and cut the white and green parts crosswise into thin slices. Cut the top from the bell pepper. Stand it upright and cut down inside the four walls, separating them from the center core and seeds. Then cut the walls into thin strips. Coarsely chop the leaves from the cilantro sprigs.
  • Put the cabbage in a large mixing bowl. Add the water chestnuts, scallions, bell pepper, cilantro, and dressing. Toss well. Cut the cooked chicken into strips no more than 1/2-inch wide. Add to the salad and toss.
