Grilled Chicken With Sweet Soy Slaw and Dipping Sauce

Yield Makes 6 servings
The dipping sauce will keep in the refrigerator, covered, for several weeks. Warm sauce over medium-low heat on stove before serving. Use as a marinade on steaks or shrimp too.


  • 2 cups soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 8 pieces crystallized ginger
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 6 skinned and boned chicken breasts
  • 2 (12-ounce) packages broccoli slaw
  • 1/4 cup green onions, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds, toasted
  • Salt and pepper to taste

How to Make It

  1. Combine first 4 ingredients in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir in sugar. Cook for 10 minutes or until sugar dissolves, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat. (Mixture will thicken.) Reserve 1 1/2 cups soy mixture, and set aside.

  2. Brush both sides of chicken evenly with remaining soy mixture; cover and let stand 10 minutes.

  3. Grill, covered with grill lid, over medium-high heat (350° to 400°) 6 to 8 minutes on each side or until done.

  4. Toss together broccoli slaw, green onions, sesame seeds, and 1/2 cup reserved soy mixture; top with grilled chicken. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve with remaining reserved 1 cup soy mixture for dipping.

  5. Grilled Salmon With Sweet Soy Slaw and Dipping Sauce: Substitute 6 (4-ounce) salmon fillets for chicken, and grill 4 to 6 minutes on each side or until fish flakes with a fork.
