Sweet Ginger Soy Chicken

My husband trains like a bodybuilder and when he cracks down that means his diet gets really lean and methodical. This makes for some fun new inventions in the kitchen! I love helping him eat clean (I mean, heck, who’s really benefiting here? *wink*)

This took 15 minutes 🙂

Ingredients

  • 1 (2.3 lbs) pkg chicken, sliced
  • 1 med onion, chopped
  • 2-3 tsp sesame oil
  • 3 cloves garlic (use 1 heaping tbsp ready minced, its faster prep)
  • 1 heaping tbsp minced ginger
  • 3/4 cup chicken stock
  • 4 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp honey or sucanat
  • 1 cup frozen shelled edamame  (rinse in cold water in colander and set aside) OR  1 can green peas, drained

Directions

  1. Heat sesame oil in pan on medium heat
  2. Add onion and cook gently for about 5 minutes, then add 3 cloves garlic and cook additional 2-3 minutes or until onion is translucent
  3. Add chicken and ginger
  4. Stir in broth, soy and honey. Then add edamame/peas and cook until tender

Sorry, no picture as of yet!…it was gone before I could get a good pic! Ah, well…

Gyro Meat with Tzatziki Sauce

My kid brother made me proud – he made these gyros from scratch! He did a half-lamb, half-beef blend and served it on whole wheat pita with tzatziki sauce, grilled onions and fresh diced tomatoes. Yum!

This was spun from the recipe by Alton Brown. Robert’s only alterations were adding Oregano and Thyme and doing the beef-lamb blend. For the tzatziki sauce he exchanged the plain yogurt for Greek yogurt.
