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


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.

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

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

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.

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.
