DUKAN THAI GRILLED CHICKEN & SHRIMP

INGREDIENTS:

20120620-073921.jpg

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/2 pound shrimp
4 garlic cloves
Large bunch cilantro
2 Tbs GF Soy Sauce or Asian fish sauce (GF = Gluten Free)
1.5 Tbs toasted sesame oil OR 1.5 Tbs Olive oil and 2 Tbs roasted sesame seeds (I couldn’t find sesame oil, so made my own!)

Place all the ingredients, except the chicken and shrimp, in a food processor or blender and blend until smooth (took about 40 seconds in a blender using the pulse button).

Place chicken breasts in oven proof baking dish and pour the marinade over the chicken. Place in fridge for 15 minutes.

Prepare your grill or preheat your oven to 375 degrees. When done, the internal temp should be 165F.

I baked in oven as follows:
Cooked for 40 minutes.
Pulled out and spooned the juices on top
Back in oven and added the asparagus dish to the oven

Asparagus, 1 tsp of organic sweet, salted butter, 2 crushed garlic cloves

After an additional 15 minutes, pull out the asparagus, add the shrimp to the chicken dish, drizzle a teeny bit of olive oil on shrimp and put oven on BROIL for 8 more minutes.

Bernadette and Kevin loved it. Going to miss going back to china and being restricted to a burner and pan again.

I fly back to China tomorrow. I’ve had a wonderful time in Florida and North Carolina. 3 more months and I’ll be home for good!

Also, took mom to the train yesterday for her trip back to Newberry. Here’s some pics from our trip…

  1. Looks good. I will steal this one. What is the orange looking stuff by the shrimp? Also, you just put the asparagus in the oven and baked it? Did you spoon the juices over the shrimp as well? Want to make sure mine comes out looking as good as yours.

    • It was yummy. The orangy stuff is spaghetti squash which was made with butter, so NOT Dukan friendly, but yummy :) I did put the asparagus in the oven…. For 15 minutes. I did spoon the juices on the Shrimp! You better tell me all about it when you make it :) xoxo

  2. Yum! That looks delicious Sandi! How cute is your Mum, sounds like you have had a fab trip, safe travel back to China :) x

  3. You and your Mom look so great together; I know how wonderful it is to see her and how hard it is to leave her. Just know she feels the same.

    I gave you an award today – check it out at my blog & Happy travels today!
