Today's post is brought to you by Nakano Rice Vinegar but all opinions are 100% mine.
This is one of those recipes that will quickly become a staple. We have eaten it three times since I first made it and given that there are only 5 minutes of hands on prep, it's easy enough for almost any night. Plus the leftovers are delicious in salads, lettuce wraps, and Asian inspired tacos. Did I mention it all cooks in one dish, you can use almost any veggies, and if you use foil there is basically no clean up? Love that.
So now let's talk about the secret sauce that makes this chicken so so good. It's actually a really simple combination of soy sauce, mango seasoned rice vinegar, garlic, cilantro, and black pepper. That's it. But let's talk about this vinegar for a minute because it's the real star.
The Mango Seasoned Rice Vinegar from Nakano is bright, packed with flavor, and brings a subtle sweetness to the dish without added sugar. It is a subtle mango flavor that can be amped up by serving the chicken with a simple mango salsa to really bring out the mango notes in the marinade. This vinegar is seriously delicious. I love using it in marinades, homemade salad dressings, quick pan sauces, and simple dishes like this one pan marinated chicken. Nakano also makes many other delicious seasoned vinegars with flavors like citrus, basil and oregano, roasted garlic, and red pepper. It's the perfect low calorie way to add flavor and something I use all the time when I cook.
