Chicken in an Asian Salad Dressing

I found this Asian salad dressing on Food.com. I use it periodically when I want to have an asian inspired dinner & need a salad dressing that goes along with that! I make a salad that has some greens, vegetables, nuts, sesame seeds & top with some wonton strips or chow mein noodles. This would also be good drizzled on some sautéed  bokchoy, or any cooked veg!

The other day I made too much salad dressing..so I decided to marinate some chicken in it then bake the chicken. It was delicious!! A mild asian flavour for sure, not like Chicken Adobo, here is a link to the recipe, which has a deep rich soy sauce & garlic flavour.

Chicken in an Asian Salad Dressing

Ingredients

2 3lb chicken, cut into 8 pieces so a total of 16 pieces of chicken

2 recipes of the Asian Vinaigrette Salad Dressing from Food.com

Ingredients for the salad dressing  ***this  is double the amt of the original recipe  enough to use for the chicken except that I decreased the amt of oil for the chicken If you want to make this for a salad, halve all the ingredients except the oil..the original recipe calls for 1/2 cup of oil

6 tbsp rice wine vinegar

2 tbsp sugar

6 tbsp soy sauce

2 tbsp grated fresh ginger *** if you do not have fresh ginger, use 2 tsp ground ginger

1 tsp garlic, minced *** I used 2 cloves of garlic

4 tbsp sesame oil

1/2 cup oil

2 tbsp sesame seeds

2 tbsp green onions, chopped

 

Method

  1. Place the chicken pieces in a roasting pan big enough to lay the chicken in a single layer
  2. Season the chicken pieces with salt & pepper
  3. Mix the salad dressing together in a jar big enough to hold it all & shake to combine
  4. Pour over the chicken pieces
  5. Bake in a 375f oven, basting often, until fully cooked & nice & brown.

*** Alternately if you have the time, you can put your chicken in a bowl or bag & pour the salad dressing over it & marinate it until you are ready to cook the chicken

I served this with some oven fried rice. which will be in a future blog post… some egg rolls & roasted broccoli.

Enjoy!

  1. Sounds great! I have been a little burnt out on chicken lately, but I think it is because I don’t change up the spices I use enough. I think some ginger would be just the thing!
