A great combination of sweet and salty, this marinade can be used equally as well for simple marinated proteins as well as stir-fry.

I’ve been getting a little more creative with my savory dishes recently.  And trying not to just come up with ideas for desserts, cookies and cakes etc!  This recipe came out of having some leftover salad dressing from my Spinach and Orange Salad (recipe here) and not wanting to throw it away.  I thought I could make some sort of chicken marinade … and thus this recipe was born!  Enjoy …

The first time I made this sauce, I made it with chicken, thinly sliced carrots and bell pepper with some broccoli thrown in, all over rice noodles – Abby wanted noodles for dinner ‘Kung Fu Panda’ style.  I’m not sure whether this was exactly according to those specifications, but it was yummy and she loved it as well, so I’ll take that for a win!  Most recently I’ve used pork chops and they were a winner as well!

I have a feeling that this marinade works well for any meat!
