Zesty Oriental Chicken Salad

Diet Type: Dairy Free

Cooking Time: 30 minutes - one hour


  1/3 cup rice vinegar
  1/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  2 tablespoons sugar
  2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh ginger
  1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (about 4 ounces each)
  2 cups broccoli florets
  2 carrots, cut into 1 1/2 inch long matchsticks
  1 red bell pepper, cut into 1 1/2 inch long matchsticks
  1 cup halved pitted dried plums
  3 green onions, sliced
  1/2 teaspoon Sesame Oil

In small bowl, combine vinegar, soy sauce, sugar, cilantro, ginger, garlic, Sesame Oil, and crushed red pepper. Pour 1/4 cup marinade mixture over chicken in plastic bag. Refrigerate 30 minutes; turning bag occasionally. In large bowl, place broccoli, carrots, bell pepper, dried plums and green onions. Toss with remaining marinade mixture to coat completely; let stand 30 minutes. Remove chicken from plastic bag; discard marinade from chicken. Grill chicken over medium-hot coals (or broil on rack or broiler pan 3-4 inches from heat) 10-15 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink in center, turning once. Cut each breast into slices across the grain. To serve, line each of 4 plates with 1 lettuce leaf; top with vegetable mixture, dividing equally.
