Asian BBQ’ed Chicken & Grilled Romaine

I’m ready for summer!  That means its time to get out the scrubber and clean off the BBQ!

5-Ingredient Asian Marinade

for BBQ Chicken
Ingredients:
4 Shakes Hot Chili Sesame Oil
1 teaspoon Chili Garlic Sauce
2 teaspoons Sweet Chili Sauce
4 teaspoons Teriyaki Sauce
1 teaspoon Honey
Directions:
1.  Place 2 chicken breasts in a freezer bag.  Add all 5 sauce ingredients.  Zip up and mush the chicken around in the bag (with the bag closed!) until the sauce is mixed well.  Put in the refrigerator for an hour.  Flip the bag over once during that time.
2.  After it sits for a while, take the chicken out.  Fire up your barbie (cleaned and sprayed with Pam BEFORE lighting).  Place chicken on the grill over medium to medium high heat.  Depending on thickness, heat flipping once until it looks done.  If you aren’t sure, go ahead and take a piece off, cut it in the middle and make sure it’s no longer pink.  Put it back on if it’s not done.
3.  That’s ALL!!!

I’m not the best judge with checking to see if my chicken is done.  I’m so paranoid that I always end up taking it off too late when it’s all dried out.  This time around, I made sure to not over-cook it and it was perfect!  You can use this chart for some helpful tips!

Chicken marinating…

I was able to get some nice grill marks on there!

I served this sweet and spicy chicken over a really yummy salad… with GRILLED ROMAINE!  Have you ever had it before?  It’s so good!  It was so easy to do and I will absolutely be using this again, really soon!

Grilled Romaine

Ingredients:
2 heads Romaine, rinsed and patted dry
Olive Oil sprayer
Salt & Pepper
Directions:
1.  Slice the romaine in half, lengthwise with a large knife so you make it through the entire head, leaving the bottom white part in tact.  Pat dry and let sit for 5 minutes.  Spray with an oil sprayer, or carefully lightly drizzle olive oil on.  You really don’t want to use too much.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
2.  Fire up your Barbie!  You’ll only need medium-low heat for these babies so make sure it’s not too high.  Place the lettuce slice-side-down onto the grill.  Let the sit for 5 minutes before checking on them.  Once they are starting to get some grill marks, cook for another minute or two, then using tongs, take off of the grill.
3.  Cut off the white-ends of the lettuce, cut up and serve in a salad!

cut the romaine length-wise so the leaves stay together

finished product!

This was so delish!  You seriously won’t believe how easy it is and how much of a difference it will make to your salad.  Try it!!!

The rest of the stuff in this salad were some strawberries, dried currants, sunflower seeds, red bell pepper, celery, a hot cherry pepper and some blue cheese crumbles.  It all came together really well with the chicken and some Ken’s Light Asian Sesame.

yummy salad with both the romaine and the chicken
