Quick & Easy Cucumber Kimchi

Quick & Easy Cucumber Kimchi is crunchy fun of flavor and just a bit spicy (turn up the heat if you dare). This is absolutely one of my favorite ways to enjoy Cucumbers. This is a great main entree or side salad. It is perfect for a light lunch with a small bowl of fresh rice. I love to sit and chat while snacking over a shared salad and this one adds some heat to the conversation.

    Sweet moist tender chicken that is smothered in honey infused sweetness. Healthy, easy to make Asian Honey Chicken Breast is a quick meal for a busy day. These breasts are covered with amazing flavors, they are sweet, tangy, garlicky with a mouthwatering finish. I was inspired to refine this recipe because we live about 3 hours from the closest good Chinese restaurant. I do not have to pay restaurant prices for an easy to make at home meal for half the cost. May family loves this dish and I am sure yours will too.

    Clean and slice the chicken in half – lengthwise (4 filets). Optional: Use a meat pounder to tenderize the each chicken to an even ⅓” thick.

    Season both sides of the breasts with salt & pepper. Place the flour in a shallow bowl. Coat both sides of the chicken with flour.

    Then gently shake off the excess.

    Heat the pan up to medium-high. Add 2 tbsp butter (wait until it melts). Add chicken breasts and cook for 3-4 minutes per-side or until lightly golden brown. Depending on the size of the pan, you may need to do this is 2 batches. Remove breast and set aside. 

    Add butter and wait for 30 seconds. Add garlic, soy sauce, honey, vinegar and mix.

    Return chicken to the pan. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until the sauce has reduced by about half.

        Salmon Kimchi Fried Rice

        Salmon Kimchi Fried Rice with an over easy egg is deliciously filling and fun to eat. This recipe is one of my go to dinners when I want something simple, rewarding and satisfying. The runny yolk of the egg adds richness and goes great with the seared salmon cubes. Salmon is a versatile fish that goes great with kimchi and fried rice. The seared Salmon adds juicy chunks of meat to complete this well balanced and satisfying meal. The kimchi can be a bit spicy so be sure to sample/taste yours to make sure you like it. But for me, I love the spice and I make my own homemade kimchi. So this dish is a personal favorite that I believe everyone can make and appreciate. I love the tart and spice of crunchy kimchi and warm spoonfuls of filling rice and I am sure you will too.

        Please follow FacebookInstagram,  Twitter Pinterest, or subscribe to my YouTube channel.

        Clean, chop (½” cubes) and pat the salmon dry with a paper towel. Place them in a bowl. Add the rest of the marinade ingredients and mix well. Cover and marinate for 15 minutes.

        Add 2 tbsp of oil to a wok/pan and heat up to medium-high. Add salmon and cook for 4-5 minutes. Make sure all sides are nicely seared. Remove salmon and set aside.

        Place the chopped onions and minced garlic in the pan/wok. Cook for 1-2 minutes or until fragrant.

        Turn up the heat to high. Add cold cooked rice, soy sauce, oyster sauce. Then mix everything together. Cook for 2-3 minutes.

        Add chopped cabbage kimchi and juice.

        Mix everything together until the rice is well coated with the sauce. Remove from heat source. Add cooked salmon.

        Serve with fried eggs. Garnish with chopped green onions &  Fumi Furikake (Seaweed Rice Seasoning). Enjoy!
