Ingredients

  • 1 tsp (5 mL) minced ginger
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) GF tamari sauce
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) sesame seeds
  • 4 oz (115 g) skinless, boneless chicken breast
  • 1 medium size cucumber, peel and thinly slice (I used spiralizer)
  • 2 tsp (10 mL) rice vinegar
  • 1 small garlic clove, minced
  • 1/8 tsp (.60 mL) or pinch of GF red chilli pepper flakes
  • 1 small tomato, thinly sliced
  • Sea salt to taste
  • Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 F
  • In a small bowl mix ginger, tamari sauce and maple syrup. Brush the chicken with the mix and top with sesame seeds. Place coated chicken on a baking pan lined with parchment paper and bake for 12 - 15 minutes or until the chicken is thoroughly cooked. Do not overcook or the chicken will become dry.
  • While the chicken is baking, in a bowl combine cucumber, rice vinegar, garlic, red chili pepper flakes and salt.
  • To serve, place tomatoes on a plate or in a bowl and then top with the salad and then chicken. The cucumbers will release some liquid adding delicious flavour to the tomatoes
