  • Yield: 4 servings 1x

Description

This simple meal is quick, healthy, and delicious! Feel free to use your favorite veggies and choice of protein.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 package extra firm tofu (drained, patted dry and cut into 1-inch cubes) or 23 chicken breasts, cut into bite sized chunks (or another protein of choice)
  • 1 cup teriyaki glaze, divided (store-bought or homemade recipe below*)
  • 3 cups mixed veggies of choice (I used 1 zucchini, 1/2 pineapple, 1 cup grape tomatoes, 1/2 large red onion, cut into 12 inch chunks)
  • 12 packages Taylor Farms Asian Chopped Salad Kit
  • 810 wooden skewers, soaked in water for 1520 minutes

Instructions

  1. Reserve 1/3 cup teriyaki glaze for later. Place remaining glaze into a container or baggie, along with the tofu or chicken. Let marinate at least 30 minutes to overnight, flipping halfway to ensure even marinating .
  2. Preheat grill to medium–high and lightly oil grate. Thread veggies and marinated tofu/chicken on the soaked skewers. Place skewers onto the grill and cook for a few minutes each side. Baste with reserved 1/3 cup of glaze. (If cooking chicken make sure chicken is fully cooked on the inside) Remove from heat.
  3. Place contents of salad kit onto a large platter and top with crunchy toppings. Top salad with skewers and serve with the Asian style dressing from the kit.

Notes

*Teriyaki Glaze: Mix together ½ cup low sodium soy sauce or tamari (get gluten-free soy sauce, if needed), 2–4 tablespoons honey or coconut sugar (to taste), ¼ cup water, 1 tablespoon rice vinegar, 1 teaspoon sesame oil, 1 tablespoon minced garlic. Take out 1/3 cup marinade and reserve for glaze. Pour the remaining marinade into a baggie/container with tofu or chicken. Let marinate for at least 30 minutes to overnight. Flip halfway through for even marinating.
Combine the reserved 1/3 cup marinade with 1 teaspoon cornstarch and heat in the microwave or in a small saucepan until thickened (a few minutes. must come to a boil in order to thicken using cornstarch)
