Here I am, all alone for dinner deciding what to make. I take one individually wrapped PERDUE® PERFECT PORTIONS® Boneless Skinless Chicken Thigh pouch out of the freezer. Wait for it…
The phone rings and it looks like I’ll now be making dinner for three, so I take out two more, using only what I need.
My household is constantly busy and it is rare that I only cook for one. With the numbers constantly changing, having individually wrapped portions makes it easy for me to serve 1 or 8 in a jiff.
PERDUE® PERFECT PORTIONS® can be prepared in 30 minutes or less, times vary based on being frozen or thawed.
PERDUE® chickens are always fed a 100% vegetarian diet, including locally sourced corn and soybeans, and marigolds with no added hormones or steroids.

PERDUE® Sticky Chicken Salad is a quick meal perfect for summertime. No heating up the kitchen, just the grill and a quick microwave and ready in just 30 minutes. While the chicken can be marinated ahead of time, you can just as easily baste while grilling.
The marinade is versatile and can also be used as the salad dressing, if desired. Just reserve a small portion prior to grilling your Sticky Chicken.

Sticky Chicken Salad
- 4 chicken breasts boneless, skinless
- 1/2 cup ketchup
- 1/2 cup honey
- 1/2 cup light brown sugar
- 1/2 cup light soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon bottled grated ginger
- 1 tablespoon bottled minced garlic
- 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
- 1 tablespoon Sriracha if desired
- 8 cups mixed greens or desired lettuce
- 1/2 cup roasted red peppers chopped
- 1 inch bunch scallions cut into 1pieces
- 1/4 cup slivered almonds
- 1 bunch asparagus ends trimmed
- 2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds if desired
- 1/2 cup Ginger Dressing
- In a medium bowl, combine ketchup through Sriracha, whisk to combine. If you plan to use the marinade as dressing, set aside a small bowl. If marinating, add chicken, cover and marinate for 1-6 hours. Otherwise, heat grill to medium-high heat and lightly coat with cooking spray.
- Place Chicken Thighs on the grill and generously baste with marinade. Cook on each side for 6-8 minutes, continuing to baste. Remove when done and set aside until ready to serve.
- Meanwhile, place asparagus in a microwave-safe dish. Add 1/4 cup water, cover with plastic wrap and microwave for 3 minutes.
- Combine all ingredients for Ginger Dressing in a small dish and whisk to combine. Set aside.
- Evenly divide lettuce and other salad ingredients between four large salad bowls, including asparagus and sesame seeds. Top each salad with two Sticky Chicken Thighs and Ginger Dressing. Enjoy your meal!
