Cooking Light MAY 2006

  • Yield: 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Thai fish sauce
  • 1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon bottled chopped garlic
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast tenders
  • 1 tablespoon peanut oil
  • 4 cups mixed salad greens
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped unsalted, dry-roasted peanuts
  • Lime wedges (optional)

Preparation

Combine first 6 ingredients in a medium bowl. Add chicken to broth mixture, stirring to coat. Let stand 3 minutes.

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Drain chicken, reserving marinade. Add chicken to the pan; cook 4 minutes or until done, stirring frequently. Stir in the reserved marinade. Reduce heat; cook 1 minute or until slightly thickened. Remove pan from heat.

Combine greens and basil in a large bowl. Add chicken mixture, tossing to coat. Place 1 1/4 cups salad mixture on each of 4 plates. Top each serving with 2 tablespoons onion and 1 1/2 teaspoons peanuts. Serve immediately. Serve with lime wedges, if desired.

Note:

The pan sauce in this dish doubles as a piquant vinaigrette for the salad. Serve with crunchy breadsticks, if you wish.
