Chinese Chicken Salad

 A great way to prevent cancer is to know what you are eating. The more you cook in the home the better. Mirin is a Japanese cooking wine. It is a great base for many dressings, sauces and Asian inspired dishes. Give this chicken salad a try. 

You’ll Need

  • 2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
  • 2 teaspoons finely chopped garlic
  • 1 tablespoon mirin (Japanese sweet rice wine) or sweet sherry
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1 skinless, boneless chicken breast half
  • 1/2 red or yellow bell pepper, cut into thin strips
  • 1 1/2 - 2 cups mixed greens torn into pieces
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil

First
  • Place ginger and garlic in a 1-quart re-sealable plastic bag.
  • Measure the mirin, soy sauce and sesame oil into the bag.
  • Massage the bag lightly to mix the ingredients.

Then
  • Using a meat pounder or a small heavy saucepan, flatten the chicken filet to an even thickness.
  • Put the chicken inside of the bag and seal it, forcing out the air.
  • Turn the bag several times to coat the filet and marinate at least a 1/2 hour or in the refrigerator for up to 8 hours.

Ten Minutes Before Eating
  • Scatter the salad greens on a dinner plate.
  • Heat the vegetable oil over medium-high heat in a skillet or ridged grill pan.
  • Cook the pepper strips, turning occasionally, until softened and slightly charred; set aside.

For the Chicken
  • Brown the chicken filet on both sides, reduce heat to medium and cook until the center is no longer pink, about 5 minutes.
  • Transfer the filet to a clean cutting board and let rest for several minutes.
  • Add 1/2 cup water to the pan and cook a minute or two longer, stirring.

Finally
  • Slice the chicken on an angle into strips and place in the center of the greens.
  • Drizzle the pan juices on the meat and scatter the pepper strips on top.

Basil Pesto Sauce

Making herbs a regular part of the diet is a super idea as many are a great source of antioxidants. 


Yields approximately 1 ½ cups

You’ll Need
  • 1 cup packed basil leaves
  • ½ cup toasted walnuts
  • 1 garlic clove
  • ½ cup Parmesan Cheese
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • Salt to taste
  • Pepper to taste

Directions
  • Mix all in a blender or food processor until an even consistency is reached.

Tips
  • You can add more garlic if you would like. You may want to mix it, have a taste and then decide.
  • This pesto freezes wonderfully. Place the pesto in ice cube trays and once the pesto has solidified place the blocks in a plastic bag and use it in the future. The ice cube technique it nice because it freezes the pesto in handy portion sizes.
  • The recipe can easily be doubled.
  • You can try different nuts such as pine nuts or macadamias.
  • You can try different herbs such as cilantro or parsley.
  • Serve over top of pastas, grilled vegetables, and fish. Or turn a piece of French or Pita bread into a pesto pizza. The options are endless but all are delicious.
  • Leave out the parmesan cheese for a vegan pesto sauce.

Sun-Dried Tomato Pasta w Vodka Cream Sauce

Hi everyone, this recipe is a staple in our home, and it is so dirt-simple to make that you end up looking like a cooking superstar when it actually takes you no time at all ... bonus!! this recipe is published in The Fat Fallacy
Sundried tomato pasta with vodka cream sauce
I borrowed this pasta recipe from my dear friend Debbie, although she’s won’t tell me how to make her incredible, and now famous, chocolate chip cookie recipe. Don’t worry, I’ll wear her down.

This is one of those recipes that sets a new standard for delicious. Although it’s simple to throw together, it really ups the ante on flavor. But remember to eat it slowly. You’ll want this one to last a long time. By the way, this makes a bunch. But the good part is that it’s just as good reheated. Stir in a touch of milk and warm it up when you are having leftovers.
The broccoli adds a wonderful touch of greenery to the pasta and is super simple to make.

You’ll need:
2/3 cup vodka
1 real good pinch of crushed red pepper or cayenne
6 tbsp butter
1 small box of penne pasta
1 cup tomatoes, blenderized
1 jar sundried tomatoes in oil
1 good handful mushrooms, sliced
1 cup whipping cream
1 cup fresh Parmesan 

Sundried tomato pasta in 4 easy steps.
Begin the water boiling for the pasta. Don’t forget to cook the pasta with some salt and olive oil.
Stir the amount of red pepper you choose (depending on your spice tolerance) into the vodka and butter. Melt the butter into the vodka-pepper mixture over a medium flame, and then bring it up to a simmer. Add the blenderized tomatoes and cream. Return to boil, lower heat, and let it work the flavors into each other at a simmer for 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, chop the sundried tomatoes into small pieces. Sauté the mushrooms with the tomatoes in their own oil. Add to the sauce. 
When the pasta is done, add it to the whole batch, and mix in the Parmesan cheese. It’s incredible.
