Health JULY 2011

  • Yield: Makes 4 servings (serving size: 4 ounces chicken and about 2 cups salad)
  • Cook time: 15 Minutes
  • Prep time: 20 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 (1-inch) piece peeled fresh ginger, grated
  • 1/3 cup Sriracha (hot chile sauce, such as Huy Fong)
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil or olive oil
  • 1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast
  • Cooking spray
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3 ears shucked corn, broken into small pieces
  • 3 ripe peaches, quartered and pitted (about 1 1/4 pounds)
  • 8 ounces watercress

Preparation

1. Combine honey and next 3 ingredients (through oil) in a medium bowl.

2. With a mallet, pound chicken breast pieces between 2 sheets of wax paper or plastic wrap until very thin; transfer to a medium dish. Spoon 2-3 tablespoons of chile dressing over the chicken; coat well.

3. Heat a grill pan, grill, or broiler. Lightly coat grill pan, if using, with cooking spray. Sprinkle chicken with salt; grill until cooked through (2-3 minutes per side). Transfer chicken to a cutting board. Continue until all of the chicken is cooked, coating grill with cooking spray as needed.

4. Grill corn until tender (about 5 minutes), brushing lightly with chile dressing while grilling; transfer to a large platter. Grill the peach quarters, just until grill marks appear (about 1 minute per side), brushing lightly with chile dressing while grilling and coating grill as needed; transfer to the platter.

5. Scatter the watercress over the platter. Slice the chicken into smaller pieces; transfer to the platter. Combine cooked juices and remaining chile dressing; stir well. Drizzle over salad as desired; serve.
