I am a big salad girl. The thing about salads though, is that you need to constantly switch the themes and flavors to keep them interesting. This is a super simple version of the always delicious Chinese Chicken Salad. If you have something in the house, add it! Throw those carrots in, trade red cabbage for green cabbage and so on! It will still taste delicious and honestly I improvise all the time with whatever I have in the house. (It's how this recipe came about!).
Serves approx. 4
-3 heads of romaine (chopped)
-1 medium red cabbage (chopped)
-1 large red onion (chopped)
-2 large cucumber (chopped)
-1 box rice crackers
-1 pound chicken fillets
-ground black pepper
-crushed red pepper
Start by pre-heating your oven to 350 while marinating your chicken in soy sauce and sesame oil.
Chop the romaine, red cabbage, onion, cucumber and place in a large bowl.
Now take out your chicken that's been marinating, coat it with a little peanut butter add some salt & pepper, wrap in tin foil and put in the oven for approx 15 minutes (varies with the size of the fillets though so definitely use your judgement!).
While your chicken is in the oven...we're going to make the dressing.
In a little bowl mix about 1/4 cup sesame oil with 1/8 cup of soy sauce and 1/8 cup peanut butter with salt and pepper and crushed red pepper.
Now toss your salad mix with that amazing dressing. Take the chicken out of the oven, chop into bite size pieces. Add the salad, crushed rice crackers, placing the chicken on top.
Squeeze a little lime on top..and get ready to eat!
