Fast & Easy Dinner: Asian Chicken and Cabbage

Fast & Easy Dinner: Asian Chicken and Cabbage

Pre-made salad mixes and bagged greens are wonderful time savers when it comes to making quick, middle of the week meals. Season packaged coleslaw with sesame oil pairs with broiled chicken for tonight's dinner. The chicken is glazed with a mixture of hoisin, garlic, and ginger, making for a moist and flavorful meal. The coleslaw adds a nice, cooling crunch to the sweetness of the chicken. To take a look at the recipe,


Asian Chicken and Cabbage
From Cooking Light

2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
1 teaspoon bottled minced garlic
1 teaspoon bottled ground fresh ginger (such as Spice World)
4 (4-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
Cooking spray
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
1/2 cup chopped onion
4 cups packaged coleslaw
1 teaspoon dark sesame oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper

  1. Preheat broiler.
  2. Combine first 3 ingredients; spread evenly over both sides of chicken. Place chicken on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray; broil 6 minutes on each side or until done.
  3. While chicken cooks, heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion; saute 2 minutes.
  4. Add coleslaw; saute 1 minute or until coleslaw begins to wilt.
  5. Place coleslaw mixture in a medium bowl. Add sesame oil, salt, and pepper, tossing to coat.
  6. Serve coleslaw mixture with chicken.

Serves 4 (serving size: 1 chicken breast half and 1/2 cup coleslaw mixture).

i'm always skeptical of the "asian" recipes in magazines and on tv. somehow, they don't seem "asian" at all. the recipes almost always call for ginger, soy, sesame oil, etc. but there is so much more to asian cooking than that. i will give this recipe a try though.

I think I will make this tonight, although I have some plain cabbage that I need to use up instead of the coleslaw mix! I hope it will turn out okay, I'm not really familiar with what exactly is IN coleslaw mix.
