Refreshing Broccolini and Chicken Tenders Tossed with Shio-Kombu
The people who tried this recipe and sent in feedback said that this dish is tasty and goes down easily. The combination of the bitter broccolini, with the umami flavor of the chicken tenders and shio-kombu is perfect. Since there is no oil used, this is a great dish during a diet!
Chicken tenders, steam cooked in the microwave (See Recipe ID: 489917)
3 to 5 g
Put the rinsed and lightly drained broccolini in a resealable plastic bag. Leave a gap in the seal for air to escape, then microwave for 1 and 1/2 minutes at 900 W. Remove the broccolini from the bag, then blanch immediately. Squeeze out excess water, then cut into bite-sized pieces.
Put the broccolini, shredded chicken tenders, and shio-kombu in a bowl, toss together, then let sit for 5 minutes. When the shio-kombu gets soft, and the salt flavor is evenly distributed, drizzle on yuzu ponzu to taste.
Story Behind this Recipe
I came up with this recipe as a refreshing easy-to-make side dish to go with a rich main dish.
Please adjust the cooking time for the broccolini depending on your microwave. I recommend under-cooking it to keep some texture.
