Asian, Quick Dinner

Soy-Ginger-Lime poached Chicken and Zucchini

This recipe is for those last few days of summer when you get zucchini, that are kind of sad looking, but you still want them.  It is a simple, super healthy, asian inspired meal.  Serve it room temperature with soba noodles or brown rice for a filling meal. So here goes !


1 lb chicken thighs ( this recipe does not have any oil so the richness of thighs work really well)

1 lb zucchini, sliced

1 tbsp of ground ginger

2 tbsp of dark soy

1 tbsp lime juice

1tsp of red pepper flakes

salt and pepper to taste ( be careful ! soy is salty!!!)


In a hot saucepan, add all the ingredients ( expect the chicken and zucchini) and mix them thoroughly.

Add the chicken pieces and cover with water.

Poach chicken till almost cooked through and then add in the zucchini.

Adjust the seasonings and cook till chicken is cooked through and the zucchini is tender.

Serve warm or at room temperature.
