Plum Chicken Tenders
- 1/4 cup bottled plum sauce
- 1 Tablespoon low sodium soy sauce
- 3 cloves chopped garlic
- 1 small slice of peeled fresh ginger
- 3 dashes red pepper flakes
- 1 dash lime juice
- 1 pinch dried basil
- 1 Tablespoon rice vinegar
- 1 teaspoon sesame oil
- 1/4 cup lite coconut milk
- 2 1/2 pounds chicken breast tenders
- Peanut Dipping Sauce (optional)
In a large bowl, combine all ingredients except the chicken. Add chicken tenders to marinade; pour all into a plastic storage bag and refrigerate for a couple of hours or overnight.
Drain the chicken and place chicken on a broiling pan lined with reynolds wrap. Broil for about 6 to 8 minutes until browned and tender.
OR cook on your Foreman Grill at 350° for about 4-5 minutes. (Note: An easy way to clean up the mess on the older Foreman Grill is to wet a couple of paper towels and place them on the grills; heat for 2 minutes; throw away the hot paper towels and just wipe off the grills.)
Note: Use same amount of marinade if cooking 1 1/4 pounds of chicken.
Dip pieces of chicken in Peanut Dipping Sauce (below). Serve with rice, marinated cucumbers, banana riata(yogurt), and pita bread.
