Baked Honey-Ginger-Soy Chicken and Cucumber Salad


Something magical happens when you combine ginger, soy sauce, honey and yellow mustard and I'll tell you what it is: It's DELICIOUS and soo simple.

Here's my recipe for my go-to simple marinade for chicken:

CHICKEN & MARINADE:

1 teaspoon honey

1 tablespoon yellow mustard

1/2 teaspoon ground ginger powder

1/8 cup soy sauce


Mix all the ingredients together and marinade your chicken. Place in a sealed container in the fridge for anywhere from 20 minutes to overnight.

Cook the chicken in a baking dish at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. I like to turn the chicken over at the halfway mark.

CUCUMBER SALAD:

1/2 large cucumber

1/2 cup shredded carrots

1/4 chopped green onion

I use a veggie spiralizer to make the cucumber "noodles", but you can also just chop up the cucumber how ever you like. I like the spiralizer because it gets rid of the water-y center of the cucumber. The firmer, outer part of the cucumber is what you want!

DRESSING:

2 tablespoons sesame oil

1/4 cup rice vinegar

Pinch of salt

Pinch of Red Chili Pepper Flakes

Sugar (optional)


Combine the ingredients and pour over salad, mix well.

YUM! This is a super easy recipe, and you can make all of it the day or night before. The longer the cucumber salad sits in the dressing, the better it tastes! It takes a while for the cucumber to absorb all of the dressing, so no need to worry about soggy salad since you aren't using lettuce.

If you guys try this let me know how you like it! :)
