A note about serious food allergies

You may be asking, "What's a wasakaka?" This savory Dominican sauce is made by blending herbs with garlic, olive oil, and hot chiles. Our version uses oregano, roasted red peppers, and fiery sambal paste for an herbaceous sauce that's just the right balance of sweet and spicy. Try it next to these roasted sweet potato fries and fresh cucumber salad. This is a healthy chicken dinner full of exotic flavors that won't weigh you down.

Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |

  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |

  1. 1

    Bake the Sweet Potatoes

    Peel and cut sweet potatoes into 1/2” thick fries. Toss sweet potatoes with 2 Tbsp. olive oil and 1/2 tsp. salt on prepared baking sheet. Spread into a single layer and bake 35-40 minutes, or until sightly charred. Turn potatoes with a spatula after 20 minutes. Set aside.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Mince garlic. Trim and thinly slice green onions. Halve grape tomatoes. Trim cucumber and cut into 1/4” rounds. Mince roasted red pepper. Rinse chicken, pat dry, and season both sides with 1/2 tsp. salt and 1/4 tsp. pepper.

  3. 3

    Cook the Chicken

    While potatoes cook, warm an outdoor grill or grill pan to medium heat and lightly coat with cooking spray (alternatively, use a medium pan). Add chicken to hot pan and cook 5-6 minutes per side, or until chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees. Transfer to a plate and let rest.

  4. 4

    Make the Wasakaka Sauce

    Combine garlic, seasoned rice vinegar, dried oregano, half the sambal, green onions, 1 1/2 Tbsp. olive oil, and roasted red peppers in a mixing bowl. Taste, and add remaining sambal if desired. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper.

  5. 5

    Make the Salad

    Combine red cabbage, cucumbers, tomatoes, and 3 Tbsp. wasakaka sauce in a mixing bowl. Toss and season to taste with 1/2 tsp. salt and 1/4 tsp. pepper.

  6. 6

    Plate the Dish

    Place grilled chicken, salad, and sweet potato fries on a plate. Spoon remaining wasakaka sauce in front of chicken.
