instructions
Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce:
1 Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce:

If you’re grilling, preheat your grill to maintain a temperature of 450-500°F. Oil the grill grates. Heat a large pot of salted water to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Thinly slice the cucumbers into rounds. Cut off and discard the bottom 1/2 inch of the broccoli stem; cut the broccoli into small florets. Cut off and discard the root ends of the scallions; thinly slice, separating the white bottoms and green tops. In a bowl, combine the sliced white bottoms of the scallions, tahini, sesame oil, soy sauce, half the vinegar, half the hoisin sauce, and 2 tablespoons of water

Marinate the cucumbers:
2 Marinate the cucumbers:

In a bowl, combine the sliced cucumbers and remaining vinegar. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste. 

Cook the chicken:
3 Cook the chicken:

STOVE: Pat the chicken dry with paper towels. Season with salt and pepper on both sides. In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned chicken; cook 6 to 7 minutes per side, or until browned and cooked through. Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a cutting board. Cover with aluminum foil to keep warm.
