Chicken Satay Stir-Fry with Orange Scented Jasmine Rice

Difficulty: Easy

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 25 minutes

Yield: 6 servings

3 3/4 cups water

2 oranges, zested

2 cups jasmine rice, rinsed

2 tablespoons canola or safflower oil, 2 turns of the pan

1 1/2 to 1 3/4 pounds chicken breast tenders, 2 packages, sliced on an angle into bite-size pieces

3 cloves garlic, crushed

1 medium yellow skinned onion, sliced

1 red bell pepper, seeded, quartered and sliced

1 cup shredded carrots, store bought, or 2 medium carrots cut into matchsticks

6 scallions, cut on an angle into 2 inch pieces

1 cup snow peas, a couple of handfuls

Satay sauce:

4 rounded tablespoonfuls chunky peanut butter

3 tablespoons dark soy, Tamari

3 tablespoons honey

1-inch ginger root, peeled and minced

1 clove garlic, crushed

1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

1/2 orange, juiced

Garnish:

2 ounces (1/4 cup) chopped peanuts or nut topping, available on the baking aisle

2 to 3 tablespoons chopped cilantro leaves or flat-leaf parsley, for garnish

2 to 3 tablespoons chopped fresh basil leaves

Heat water with orange zest to boiling. Add rice, return to boil, stir. Cover pot and reduce heat to simmer. Cook rice until tender, 18 minutes. Fluff with fork.

For stir-fry, heat a large nonstick skillet over high heat. Add chicken, garlic and onion, stir-fry 3 minutes. Add remaining veggies and stir-fry 5 minutes more. Heat all ingredients for sauce together in a small pot over low heat, stirring the sauce until all ingredients are combined. Transfer stir-fry to a large platter and pour sauce evenly over the chicken and vegetables. Sprinkle the platter with chopped nuts, cilantro, and basil. Serve jasmine rice in a separate dish with an ice cream scoop to serve the rice with -- it makes perfect, pretty, round portions of rice on the dinner plates.

Thai Cucumber and Radish Salad

Difficulty: Easy

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Yield: 6 servings

1/2 cup rice wine vinegar

3 tablespoons sugar

2 tablespoons light oil, such as canola or safflower

1 pound daikon radish, peeled and thinly sliced

1 English or seedless cucumber, thinly sliced

1 red bell pepper, seeded and very thinly sliced

1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

20 fresh basil leaves

Coconut Shrimp

Recipe Summary

Difficulty: Easy

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 5 minutes

Yield: 6 servings

Canola or safflower oil, for frying

1/2 cup plain bread crumbs

1/2 teaspoon salt, eyeball it in palm of hand

2 pinches ground cayenne pepper

1 1/2 teaspoons Chinese five-spice powder, available on spice aisle

1 lime

1 cup shredded coconut

2 egg whites

1 pound large fantail shrimp, deveined and peeled -- ask for easy peels at fish counter

Heat 2 inches oil over medium high heat. A cube of bread should brown in a 10 count when oil is ready.

Season bread crumbs with salt, cayenne pepper and five-spice powder. Cut the lime into wedges and reserve.

Toss coconut with seasoned bread crumbs to combine. Lightly beat the egg whites. Dip shrimp in the egg whites, then coat with the coconut breading. Fry shrimp 5 minutes in hot oil until evenly golden and crispy. Garnish with lime wedges and serve. TIMING: To serve all of the courses together, a mix-n-match, family-style presentation, you can bread the shrimp and wait to heat oil and fry when you are ready to put the chicken stir-fry in the pan. Or, for separate courses, serve the shrimp with the salad, have your rice cooking and your ingredients prepped for the stir-fry, then stir-fry the chicken only when guests are ready for it.
