I recently had some extra ingredients on hand that went together perfectly for a Chinese Chicken Salad.
Sorry there are no measurements, but I think you can handle it!
1 Boneless chicken breast
1 tangerines or oranges (if you have them)
Chow mein noodles
Toasted sesame seeds
First, a note: As always I used a lot of what I happened to have. Don't worry if you don't have all of those ingredients. I would bet you could add or subtract nicely with peanuts, water chestnuts, ramen noodles etc. Whatever your heart desires. This just happens to be my version.
Cook the chicken breast as you desire. For me, I usually cut up the chicken into bite sized pieces and then put some olive oil in a skillet. I cook the chicken over medium high heat with some garlic salt and its always great.
To toast the sesame seeds, I set the oven to broil and place them directly on a cookie sheet. Then I just wait until they have turned light brown (aka toasted). [Pay attention though as I left my first batch too long and they were black]
Then I cook the rice noodles. Rice noodles are thin and clear then you cook them in oil and they look like this! (Think what they put in the lettuce wraps at P.F. Changs) See the picture:
Shred the carrots, chop the lettuce and wash any other necessary additions.
