Ever been stuck in a food rut? I know I have. A few weeks ago was a prime example of me in a food rut. I was eating the same things over and over, and things I didn't even really like, but were easy. I was feeling like I needed a food kick-start. Insert a San-K glaze and marinade: Sweet & Tangy.
Once again San-J absolutely hits the nail on the head with this sauce. The Sweet and Tangy sauce is exactly that - deliciously tart with a smooth sweet finish. I decided to marinate some chicken and then grill it. The sauce goes so well with chicken, transforming a pretty bland grilled meat into juicy, caramelized strips. I paired it with a very simple coconut rice and steamed broccoli and it was a perfect healthy and delicious meal! I am dying to try it with shrimp in a stir fry!
Sweet and Tangy Grilled Chicken
Preferred cut of chicken (I prefer boneless thighs or strips of chicken breasts)
Salt and pepper to taste
Prepare your preferred cut of chicken. If breasts, cut into strips and salt and pepper. If thighs, salt and pepper as well. Place in a large ziplock bag and pour in a generous amount of San-J Sweet and Tangy sauce. Be sure it is enough to coat entirely. Let marinate for the time you have, overnight or just an hour works fine! Grill until no longer pink in center. Coat with additional Sweet and Tangy sauce while on the grill.
1 1/2 cups jasmine rice*
2 cups of coconut milk
1/4 cup of water
1 tsp. sugar
1/2 tsp salt
Wash rice in cold water until the water runs clear. Drain in colander. In a 4 quart saucepan with a lid, add coconut milk, water, sugar, and salt and stir to blend. Add rice and stir while bringing to a boil. Cover tightly and reduce heat to a low simmer. Allow to cook for about 18 minutes or until done. Remove from heat, and let stand for a few minutes. Fluff and serve!
I'm sure many of you have heard about the arsenic issues with rice lately. To buy rice with the least amount of arsenic, choose white rice from India or Pakistan. Avoid brown rice because the hull retains arsenic and avoid rice grown in the US.
Please note, I did receive this product complimentary from San-J but, as always, the opinions are entirely my own.
