Chicken Almond Satay and Veggie Spring Rolls {Gluten Free}

This is a tasty dinner with an Asian flair.  Traditional satay is generally prepared with peanuts or peanut butter but why not try it with almond butter?  I love the more subtle flavor of the almond butter and the great richness it has as a tasty dipping sauce. Get your chicken in the marinade a few hours before dinner to really infuse some great flavor. We had our chicken almond satay with some steamed jasmine rice and some fabulous veggie spring rolls on the side. The spring rolls were stuffed with delicious veggies and are baked not fried. Check out our fun tip for adding some extra savory mushroom flavor to your recipes. Try this Make Your Own Take Out Dinner (MYOTO) tonight. Enjoy!

Chicken Marinade Recipe: (serves 6-8)
2 cups chicken broth
2 Tbsp Tamari
1/2 tsp rice vinegar
1/2 tsp ground ginger powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
3 tbsp agave nectar
16 chicken tenders

1. In a medium bowl combine broth, Tamari, rice vinegar, ground ginger, garlic powder and agave nectar. Place chicken tenders in a large resealable bag or shallow baking dish and pour the marinade over the top so that the chicken is mostly submerged. Allow chicken to marinate for 2-4 hours in the refrigerator.
2. Grill chicken on outdoor grill or grill pan over medium-high heat for about 3 minutes per side or until chicken reaches an internal temperature of 160'F. Remove from heat, cover and set aside.

Almond Satay Dipping Sauce Recipe:
4 tbsp smooth almond butter
2 tbsp agave nectar
4 tbsp oat milk (or coconut milk)
1-1/2 tbsp tamari
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp rice vinegar
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp ground coriander
1/8 tsp Sriracha hot sauce

Directions: In a medium bowl whisk together all ingredients for the sauce until well combined and smooth. Drizzle sauce over chicken and bring more to the table for dipping.

Spring Rolls Recipe: (makes 12 rolls)
1 tbsp olive oil
1-2 cups mushrooms, sliced
4 heads bok choy, julienne
1 medium carrot, thinly sliced
1 stalk celery, thinly sliced
2 radishes, thinly sliced
1/2 cup low sodium chicken broth
1 tbsp tamari
1 tsp mushroom powder, optional (ground dehydrated mushrooms see *TIP* below)
1/2 tsp fresh ginger, minced
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup of edamame, shelled (frozen is okay too)
12 spring roll papers (rice or tapioca paper)

Finely grind dehydrated mushrooms in a food processor or spice grinder 
and add the fine powder to your dishes for added savory flavor
1. In a large saute pan over medium-high heat, add olive oil and mushrooms.  Saute mushrooms until they are tender and browned, about 4-5 minutes.
2. Add the bok choy, carrots, celery and radishes to the pan and saute for about 2-4 minutes more. Add the chicken broth, tamari, mushroom powder, ginger, and salt and saute over medium heat about 7-10 minutes or until the liquid evaporates.
3. If using frozen edamame, place shelled edemame in a small bowl and cover with water; microwave on high for 3 minutes. Add edamame to the veggies in the pan.
4. Soak the spring roll paper in luke warm water until it starts to soften ~1 minute then shake off the excess water and place on a clean surface. Put 2-4 tbsp of the veggie mixture on the spring roll paper and wrap tightly. Spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray and place the roll with the end of the wrap down to hold it in place. Repeat for all 12 rolls. Bake at 450'F for 20 minutes or until heated through and golden brown.
