Asian Grilled Chicken and Veggies

    A quick and easy, no-mess dinner recipe, chicken and vegetables are marinated in an Asian inspired sauce before hitting the grill.

    Asian Grilled Chicken and Veggies

    Whenever I don’t have a game plan for dinner, I always fire up the grill. Whether it’s my fast and easy grilled shrimp tacos or these Asian inspired grilled chicken and veggies, nothing is easier (or easier to clean!) than dinner cooked on the grill!

    By keeping my pantry and refrigerator stocked with Asian ingredients like soy sauce, rice vinegar and ginger, I know that I can easily infuse any protein or vegetables with major flavor in 30 minutes or less.

    Since it’s not always easy to source fresh ginger, I always have Gourmet Garden Ginger stir-in paste on hand in my refrigerator. The best part? The stir-in paste lasts up to 3 months when refrigerated!

    These juicy, grilled chicken breasts are marinaded with soy, garlic, ginger and Chinese five spice powder. In case you’re doing the conversion, 1 teaspoon of garlic paste is equivalent to 1 garlic clove. Easy math, right?

    For the veggies I like to keep the mess to a minimum and mix everything together right in a resealable plastic bag. This is a fun time to get the kids involved in the kitchen and let them help shake!

    When you’re ready to cook dinner, I highly recommend a handy grill basket for keeping the veggies in place. As the onions and peppers cook they caramelize and turn golden brown and slightly sweet.

    Garnishing Grilled Chicken and Veggies with Cilantro

    Right before serving, I like to garnish the entire dish with Gourmet Garden lightly dried basil or cilantro. These convenient resealable containers keep the herbs fresh for up to 4 weeks! That’s about 4 x as long as traditional fresh herbs.
