Honey and spicy mustard make a sweet and tangy glaze for chicken cutlets.
The cutlets are about 1/2-inch thick and take about 2 minutes per side to sauté. The sauce glazes the chicken, keeping it moist.
Sesame oil is expressed from sesame seeds. I like to use toasted sesame oil. Toasting the seeds intensifies their flavor. It is available in most supermarkets.
Finally, cucumber adds crunch to the rice salad, and tomatoes add color.
Never miss a local story.
• Boneless, skinless chicken breast can be used instead of chicken cutlets. Cook them about 5 minutes per side. A meat thermometer should read 165 degrees.
• Canola oil can be substituted for toasted sesame oil.
• A quick way to chop fresh ginger is to peel, cut into small pieces and press through a garlic press. Or grate the peeled ginger right into the sauce.
Wine suggestion: Try a white wine with a little sweetness. Maybe an off-dry riesling. Or you could be brave and drink mead, the wine made from honey.
