Mango & Grapefruit Chicken Satay Salad
2 large pink or ruby-red grapefruits
1 Mango (diced)
1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1/4-inch-thick strips
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup smooth natural peanut butter
2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
1 teaspoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon hot sauce, or to taste
8 cups roughly chopped romaine lettuce (about 2 hearts)
1 cups sliced carrots
1 cup Snow or Snap/Sugar Peas
With a sharp knife, remove the peel and white pith from grapefruits and discard. Cut the grapefruit segments from the surrounding membranes, letting them drop into a small bowl. Working over a large bowl, squeeze the remaining membranes to extract the juice. Set the segments and juice aside separately add diced mango.
Position rack in upper third of oven; preheat broiler. Line a broiler pan or baking sheet with foil.
Toss chicken, dry mustard, garlic powder, cinnamon, coriander, ginger, pepper and salt in a large bowl until the chicken is well coated. Place on the prepared pan in a single layer.
Broil the chicken until cooked through, about 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, whisk peanut butter, soy sauce, sugar and hot sauce into the reserved grapefruit juice until smooth. Add the cooked chicken and lettuce; toss to combine. Serve the salad topped with carrots and the reserved mango and grapefruit segments.
Tonight I am serving this salad with sliced warmed artesian baked bread and fruit compote.
