Chicken in an Asian Salad Dressing

Marinade some chicken in this asian salad dressing then pop it into the oven or on the grill for a delicious dinner!

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!.

You can make the dressing, use some for a salad or pour it over cooked vegetables & keep some to cook  your chicken in! This chicken has a mild asian flavour which is so good1

! I doubled the oringinal recipe so that I had enough to use for the chicken & have some for a salad… I decreased the amount of oil…since it was too oily for the chicken…

I made lots of chicken… you can make this amount of dressing, use some & keep some in the firdge for salads during the week if you want to cook less chicken then I have in this recipe

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 salad dressing…

Ingredients for the salad dressing  ***this is double the amount of the original recipe

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 all of the ingredients & shake to combine
  4. Pour over the chicken pieces
  5. Bake in a 375f oven, basting often, until fully cooked & nice & brown or grill the chicken until fully cooked

*** 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!
