We had a sweet, younger couple over for dinner, and they have been eating healthy. I made sure that our menu was okay with their diet restrictions (having many of my own currently and in the past).
The Menu: (I will be posting the Bok Choy and Cauliflower Fried Rice over the next couple of days.)
Japanese Style Chicken Thighs with Roasted Bok Choy and Cauliflower Fried Rice
For the chicken, I used boneless, skinless chicken thighs. For the marinade and basting sauce:
1/2 ounce Tamari
1 ounce Mirin or Dry Sherry
1/4 ounce sesame oil
1 teaspoon sugar (or honey)
1 ounce ginger – grated
2 large garlic – grated
2 green onions or scallions, chopped
salt and pepper to taste
Mix everything together in a bowl except the salt, pepper and green onions. Place the chicken in a the bowl and pour the sauce over. Cover and let sit at room temperature for about 45 minutes to a hour.
Place chicken on a sheet pan (I cover mine with aluminium foil). Sprinkle the chicken with the salt and pepper.Bake at 350 degrees, for about 30-35 minutes or until chicken is done, turning once and basting with the marinade.Sprinkle the green onions on the chicken. Serve hot with the Bok Choy and Cauliflower Fried Rice.
We loved it, and our guests were very happy with the meal. (Yay!) I didn’t end up taking pictures of our plates (I had forgotten-ugh).
