Instructions

Braise chicken
1
  • Pat chicken dry with paper towels. Carefully slice into the centre of each chicken breast, parallel to the cutting board, leaving 1/2-inch intact on the other end. Open up chicken like a book, then season with 1/4 tsp (1/2 tsp) garlic salt and pepper. 
  • Heat a medium (large) pot over medium-high heat. 
  • When hot, add 1/2 tbsp (1 tbsp) oil, then chicken. Sear until golden-brown, 1-2 min per side
  • Meanwhile, combine soy sauce mirin blend, brown sugar, ginger-garlic paste and 2 tbsp (3 tbsp) water in a bowl. 
  • Add soy sauce mixture and 1 tbsp (2 tbsp) butter, then bring to a simmer. Cover and reduce to medium-low. Simmer until chicken is cooked through, 8-10 min.**
Cook rice
2
  • Meanwhile, add 1 cup (2 cups) water, 1 tbsp (2 tbsp) butter and 1/2 tsp (1 tsp) garlic salt to another medium pot. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat.
  • Meanwhile, using a strainer, rinse rice until water runs clear. 
  • Add rice to the boiling water, then reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and cook until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed, 12-14 min. (NOTE: Reduce heat to low if water is boiling over.)
  • Remove from heat. Set aside, still covered.
Prep
3
  • Meanwhile, trim snow peas, then cut in half. 
  • Cut bok choy into 1-inch pieces. Using a strainer, rinse bok choy leaves to wash away any hidden dirt!
  • Toss snow peas, bok choy, remaining garlic salt and 1/2 tbsp (1 tbsp) oil in a medium bowl. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Layer two 24x12-inch pieces of foil.
  • Arrange veggie mixture on one side of the foil.
  • Fold foil in half over veggie mixture and pinch edges to seal pouch. (NOTE: For 4 ppl, make 2 pouches, using 2 sheets of foil per pouch.)

  • Add foil pouch veggies, pot with chicken and braising liquid, a clean plate for cooked chicken, a silicone brush and any grilling tools on a later platter. 
  • Head out to grill!
Grill veggies and chicken
5
  • Place foil pouch veggies on one side of the grill. Close lid and grill until tender, 6-8 min. 
  • Meanwhile, add chicken to other side of the grill. Leave braising liquid behind in pot. Close lid and cook until grill marks form, 2-3 min per side.
  • When chicken is almost done,  brush one side with some glaze from pot, then flip. Grill for 30 sec, then repeat with other side.
  • Transfer chicken to the clean plate.    
Finish and serve

  • Carefully open foil pouch. 
  • Thinly slice chicken, if desired. 
  • Divide rice between plates. Top with veggies and chicken. 
  • Drizzle any remaining sauce over top, then sprinkle remaining green onions over top.

If you've opted to get chicken breasts, carefully slice into the centre of each chicken breast, parallel to the cutting board, leaving 1/2-inch intact on the other end. Open up chicken like a book, then season and cook it in the same way the recipe instructs you to season and cook the chicken thighs.
