Asian Grilled Chicken Rolls

Carrot and zucchini ribbons are too pretty to hide, so they are rolled on the outside of these grilled spirals.


3 tbsp (45 mL) honey
2 tbsp (30 mL) soy sauce
1 tbsp (15 mL) rice vinegar
1 garlic clove, pressed
1 tbsp (15 mL) Asian Seasoning Mix

Chicken Rolls
12 chicken tenders (about 1 1/2 lb/750 g)
1 tbsp (15 mL) Asian Seasoning Mix
2 tbsp (30 mL) soy sauce
2 large carrots, peeled
2 medium zucchini

1 1/2 cups (375 mL) uncooked jasmine rice
3 cups (750 mL) water
2 green onions with tops (about 1/2 cup/125 mL sliced)Directions:

Prepare grill for direct cooking over medium-high heat. For glaze, whisk together ingredients in Small Batter Bowl. Microwave, uncovered, on HIGH 1-2 minutes until mixture comes to a boil and is slightly thickened. Set glaze aside for serving.

For rolls, flatten chicken to an even ¼-in. (6-mm) thickness using flat side of Meat Tenderizer. Combine chicken tenders, seasoning mix and soy sauce in Stainless (4-qt./4-L) Mixing Bowl; stir to coat.

Cut carrots and zucchini into long ribbons using Vegetable Peeler. For each roll, stack a wide carrot ribbon, zucchini ribbon and chicken tender. Roll up and secure with wooden pick. Repeat with additional carrot and zucchini ribbons and remaining chicken tenders. Spray rolls with vegetable oil using Kitchen Spritzer. Thinly slice remaining carrot and zucchini ribbons crosswise to measure about 1 cup (250 mL).

For rice, combine rice, water, remaining vegetables and green onions in Rice Cooker Plus. Microwave according to package directions. Meanwhile, grill rolls, chicken end down, 3 minutes or until grill marks appear. Turn over using BBQ Tongs and grill 2-4 minutes or until Pocket Thermometer registers 170°F (77°C) when inserted into center of each roll through side.
To serve, divide rice among serving plates; top with rolls and drizzle with glaze.

Cook’s Tips: Stack a wide carrot ribbon, then a zucchini ribbon and a chicken tender, then roll it up wide end first and secure with a wooden pick. When grilling, stand rolls up and place them onto the grid of the grill, chicken end down. This prevents the vegetables from sticking to the grill grid and tearing. If desired, 1 tsp (5 mL) grated fresh ginger root and an additional garlic clove, pressed, can be substituted for the Asian Seasoning Mix.
