Summer calls for delicious, fresh and healthy food. Only fitting to share a flavoursome Chicken Teriyaki Salad recipe with you all today. Fuss-free and easy dining with a family style sharing salad, perfect for those hot and humid days.
Teriyaki sauce (often a mixture of soy, mirin, ginger and sugar) is a basic Asian marinade or seasoning combination. You can either choose to marinade your chicken breast fillets in the sauce, or use it after you grilled your fillets halfway. The sauce can be added to the pan and the chicken finished off in this sweet and sticky glaze.
You can also marinade your veggies or raw salads in this flavoursome sauce for a great umami hit.
Chicken Salad for the Family
This recipe came about as I was pondering what to cook for the caveman for dinner. If you followed me for a while you would know by now what a mission it is to cook for my loving family. I am crazy about fresh, healthy and plant-based food. However, my better half has a love-hate relationship with anything green. It dawned on me that if I don’t cook a proper (healthier) meaty meal for him, he will never get the proper nutrition he needs. Sorry baby, you have been dissed.
Not just a Chicken Salad
I decided to serve my chicken teriyaki fillets with a fresh and crisp slaw. I used baby cabbage, finely sliced carrots, spring onion, sugar snap peas, fresh apple, and coriander. This recipe is low carb and high in protein to keep your energy levels up. It also tastes amazing, so yes, this is not your usual chicken salad.
