Chicken Satay and Broccoli with Almond-Sesame Sauce
1/2 (12-ounce) bag fresh broccoli florets (about 2 cups)
2 tablespoons almond butter
2 tablespoons prepared sesame vinaigrette or Chinese chicken salad vinaigrette
1 (6-ounce) package fresh grilled chicken breast strips
Place 1 inch water in a medium pot, and add broccoli. Cover, turn heat to high, and bring to a boil. Steam broccoli 3 to 4 minutes, until tender-crisp and still bright green. Refrigerate for 20 minutes to chill. (This can be done ahead of time.)
Meanwhile, stir together almond butter and sesame dressing in a small bowl, and cut cooked chicken into bite-sized pieces. Thread chicken and broccoli, alternating, onto 6 skewers.
To serve, divide sauce among 2 small bowls or ramekins and place them on 2 small plates. Divide skewers among plates and serve.
Tip: By multiplying the quantity of almond butter and sesame dressing, you can have a dipping sauce to use all week for vegetables, chicken, shrimp and more.
