Playing with Marinades: Asian Chicken Wraps (gluten-free!)

Lately, I’ve been playing with marinades. Marinades and dry rubs make great use of pantry items and add lots of flavor to everyday dishes. The marinade used for these Asian Chicken Wraps is especially tasty.

Have we talked about freezing fresh ginger? If you buy it for this recipe, buy a big knob of it. Use the edge of a spoon to scrape off the skin/peel (apologies – my language skills are failing me). Wrap it and freeze it. It’s actually much easier to grate when frozen and it keeps for weeks.

This chicken would also be great on a Chinese Chicken Salad. I’m working on one! In the meantime, enjoy these super yummy (gluten-free) wraps.

Every House Needs a Dressing: Here’s Mine + Salad

Every Summer, my Aunt finds a white wine that she loves, at a reasonable price point, buys a case, and serves it all season. She calls it her “house white wine.” She does the same with a red in the Winter. “House” offerings are standards. They are those reliable libations and recipes upon which one can always count. I feel the same way about my house dressing. I avoid bottled dressings because I’m not looking for reasons to add sugar to my diet. This Champagne Vinaigrette is simple, tangy and a delightful addition to mixed green salads, pasta salads and more. It goes especially well on this Chicken, Apple and Goat Cheese Salad. I hope you like it.
