Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

Instructions

Mix all marinade ingredients together and evenly coat the chicken. Allow the chicken to rest for at least 15 minutes or preferably overnight. Arrange the fillets on a baking rack over a baking pan. Cover the pan with foil and bake on high at 180 C for 45 minutes to one hour. While the chicken is baking, make the satay sauce: Grind the walnuts and the ginger until finely ground but not powdery. Heat the sesame oil in a medium sized pan on high. Add the garlic and allow it to toast. Add the ground walnuts and toast it for a few seconds. Add the soy sauce and the water. Lower the heat and stir. Add the peanut butter, honey and vinegar and stir until slightly reduced. Adjust the taste to your preference, adding more of a component if desired. When done, remove from heat and place the sauce in a serving bowl. Make the tomato salad: combine all the ingredients in a small bowl and mix well. Allow to rest until ready to serve. When the juices of the chicken run clear, remove from the oven and place 2-3 chicken fillets on a plate, top it with the satay sauce (be generous) and add the tomato salad on the side. Enjoy.

Tips

Health Tips

  • Lycopene, the chemical in tomatoes that makes them red (and healthy), is fat soluble. This means eating tomatoes with a fat — say, avocado or olive oil?improves the body's ability to absorb the lycopene. Don't hesitate to include some healthy fats in this dish to get the most health benefits from the tomatoes!

  • Read the labels when buying peanut butter. To choose the healthiest peanut butter, look for a brand without too much added fat, sugar, or salt. If you buy a natural brand that requires extra stirring due to oil separation, store the jar upside down or on its side to make the task a little easier.

  • Before you pass up garlic because you don't want the bad breath that comes with it, keep in mind that the compounds that cause garlic breath also offer a lot of health benefits. Garlic has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antibacterial, and antiviral properties. If you really want to get the most health benefits out of your garlic, choose Spanish garlic, which contains the most allicin (one of garlic's most beneficial compounds).

  • Many people proclaim the health benefits of honey, saying it possesses antibacterial, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties. Although the extent of its health benefits in humans remains unclear, studies have indeed confirmed that honey can help with cold symptoms and even heal wounds and prevent infections. If you're looking to reap the potential health benefits, dark raw honey is likely the best option.

Price Tips

  • If you find meat (especially grassfed and/or organic meat!) on sale, stock up and freeze it. Ground meat will stay good 3-4 months, while steaks, chops, etc., will be fine for at least 4 months.

Cooking Tips

  • If you're using olive oil to cook at high temperatures, make sure that the olive oil you're using has a high smoke point because heating an oil past its smoke point can ruin the flavor and even release harmful compounds into your dish. Many people recommend saving extra-virgin olive oil for cold dishes or for adding the finishing touch to a warm dish. You could also use canola oil, coconut oil, or another good high-temperature oil to be on the safe side.

  • Mirin is a common ingredient in Japanese cuisine. It is a rice cooking wine with a low alcohol content that lends a sweet note to the dish. If you don't have mirin, the closest substitute would be sake and sugar, but you can also use white wine and a little sugar.

  • Here's a trick for peeling garlic quickly. Put the garlic clove on your cutting board. Take a knife with a thick blade and place the blade flat across the garlic clove (the clove should be closer to the handle than the middle of the blade). Whack down on the flat side of the blade with your free hand to smoosh the garlic a bit. Done correctly, the skin will peel right off.

  • If you normally rinse your chicken?stop! You could be spreading bacteria around your kitchen and it isn't really necessary.

Green Tips

  • Buying local honey from beekeepers in your area not only supports your community but helps those beekeepers protect bees! LocalHarvest can help you locate some tasty honey produced near you.

  • Choose pasture-raised chicken if it is available. If it is not at your supermarket, visit a farmers' market and ask around.

  • Tomatoes, especially cherry tomatoes, should be bought organic when possible. Moreover, buying tomatoes from your local farmers' market when they are in season is going to make your dish much, much tastier, not to mention more eco-friendly. In fact, we recommend using canned — or better yet, jarred?tomato products when tomatoes aren't in season instead of buying imported or greenhouse-grown tomatoes.
