Canadian Recipe: Honey Garlic Chicken & Strawberry Side Salad


This recipe is inspired by “Food Revolution Day” which is a day created by Chef Jamie Oliver to promote food education, cooking and nutrition, ethical buying and less food waste. This may sound overwhelming and expensive but can be so simple and affordable and I wanted to help make that known.  I’ve used ingredients that are in season in Canada and during this time of year (May) and can be found in any grocery store (the ones seen in the pictures were purchased from Costco Canada). These all promote healthy eating and buying Fresh Canadian ingredients that will give that extra delicious kick to all your recipes. Enjoy!

 

Honey Garlic Chicken & Strawberry Salad

For the chicken:
•    1lb market fresh Canadian chicken breast
•    1 garlic clove, crushed
•    ½ tsp minced fresh ginger
•    4 tbsp honey
•    2 tbsp soy sauce

For the strawberry salad:
•    Canadian cultivated lettuce
•    A handful of Canadian grown strawberries
•    NaturSource salad topper
•    2 tbsp olive oil
•    1 tsp balsamic vinegar

 

1.    The night before you are ready to cook the chicken breast, mix your crushed garlic, minced ginger, honey and garlic in a small bowl.


2.    Place the chicken in a baking dish and pour your marinade over top. I love the glass dishes that have a storage lid so you can let your food marinade without having to dirty extra dishes when you cook it the next day. Keep the marinated chicken in the fridge over night.


3.    When you are ready to cook it, preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Bake for 20-30 minutes.
4.    While your chicken is cooking, rinse your lettuce and strawberries. Dry and chop them to your desired size and mix them into a large bowl.


5.    In a small bowl, mix your balsamic vinegar and oil and mix it into the lettuce and strawberry mix. Season the salad with salt and pepper.
6.    When the chicken is done cooking, put it in a plate, add your salad to the side and top it with the salad topper. If you’d like to mix it up, you can put some goat cheese in the salad for an added creaminess.

Enjoy!
