octo vinaigrette chicken


5lbs of chicken thighs (you can use any part of the chicken, wings are awesome too)

octo vinaigrette

2 tablespoons finely chopped garlic (frozen)

2 tablespoons chopped, peeled fresh ginger (i freeze it, easier to shred)

2 tablespoon korean red chili pepper powder (you can reduce this if you prefer a milder taste)

1/4 cup rice vinegar

1/4 cup light soy sauce (gluten free)

3 tablespoon grapeseed oil

2 tablespoon asian sesame oil

1 1/2 tablespoon sweetener (i used light agave nectar)

freshly ground black pepper & sea salt

4 green onions, chopped (optional)

mix vinaigrette and set aside.

cook chicken at 425 degrees for 1 hour.

let chicken cool and place into a pretty platter/bowl.  Pour vinaigrette mixture and stir.  let it rest for 10-20 minutes before serving.

serve it with your favorite veggies or quinoa.

Recipe adapted from David Chang’s, “Momofuku”, octo vinaigrette.  sometimes i use the vinaigrette (the first 9 ingredients) as a sauce for wings, shrimp or just even on salads.  it’s quite versatile, i absolutely love it!


About emashita

Nearly two years ago, I was diagnosed with pre-diabetes. My life didn’t change much, but in April of 2011, I became very ill and was diagnosed with full on diabetes. It was a bit of a wake-up call for me and I quickly changed my eating habits. I scoured the internet for information about what to eat and what to avoid when it comes to a diabetic lifestyle. I cut out refined sugars, glutens, rice and pretty much all starches. After 90 days, I went in for blood work and was told that I was free and clear of diabetes. To live a healthy lifestyle inside and out is challenging and rewarding all at once. I started this blog to share my delicious (e is for Emilie and mashita means delicious in Korean) life with friends & family, and of course with new friends that stumble upon my site.
