Take Back the Kitchen...with Chinese Chicken Salad

chinese_chicken_salad_what_wine.jpegIt is just too hot to cook these days. Putting together a salad for lunch or dinner with some leftover chicken can be a delicious and satisfying meal, filled with protein. Feel free to serve with a big green salad. Enjoy!

Summer Chinese Chicken Salad:

Part I
2-3 Chicken Breasts, grilled or baked and sliced thinly into bite sized pieces
1 cup bean sprouts
3 TBS toasted sesame seeds
Cook breasts in gently boiling water until cooked (10-15 minutes)
Pour hot boiling water over Bean Sprouts
Toast sesame seeds by putting in toaster briefly

Part II
Dressing (I usually double the recipe)
2 TBL creamy Peanut Butter
1 tsp ginger (powdered or fresh, chopped)
2 tsp dry mustard powder
2 TBL sugar
4 tsp Soy (I used reduced sodium tamari)
2 tsp Sesame Oil
2 TBL peanut oil
2 tsp white vinegar
Combine all the ingredients

1/4 cup of Scallions for garnish

Mix up sauce, pour over chicken and bean sprouts, top with scallion and sesame seeds.
