Vegetable Lo Mein

____________________________________________________________________________________________

I thought I would try this as I love these kinds of dishes. I did a few things different and next time I will try it another way. I did not have rice wine vinegar so I googled to find a substitute and most said apple cider vinegar. I had some in fridge so I used it. I did not use the hot sauce as I am not a fan and I wanted the girls to eat it (wishful thinking!). I forgot to use the scallions. I had no idea what chinese noodles were so I got Japanese noodles instead. I think next time, this is what I will do different- try to find the chinese noodles. I think I would like a skinnier noodle. The sauce was delicious and I was glad I doubled it with the thick noodles. I usually tend to double most sauces in a recipe anyways. I can’t wait to try next time= skinnier noodles and scallions will be added next time! Happy Eats!

BBQ Chicken Salad

____________________________________________________________________________________________

Summertime always brings back the salads. I thought I would give this one a whirl as it has two of my favourite things, chicken and ranch dressing! How can you possibly go wrong with that combination? It did not disappoint. It was so good that we polished it off and wished there was more. The recipe says 2 servings (which are fairly large). You could probably get 4 side salads if serving with something else. The only thing I didn’t add was the tomato because a) I didn’t have one and b) I don’t really like them 😉  This salad is going in my favourite’s folder!

BBQ Chicken Salad

1 Tbsp. olive oil
2 boneless, skinless thin-sliced chicken breasts
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
6 cups chopped romaine lettuce
1 Roma tomato, diced
3/4 cup canned corn kernels, drained
3/4 cup canned black beans, drained and rinsed
1/4 cup diced red onion
1/4 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 cup Ranch dressing
1/4 cup BBQ sauce
1/4 cup tortilla strips

 

Directions:

  1. Heat olive oil in a medium skillet over medium high heat.
  2. Season chicken breasts with salt and pepper, to taste. Add to skillet and cook, flipping once, until cooked through, about 3-4 minutes per side. Let cool before dicing into bite-size pieces.
  3. To assemble the salad, place romaine lettuce in a large bowl; top with chicken, tomato, corn, beans, onion and cheeses. Pour Ranch dressing and BBQ sauce on top of the salad and gently toss to combine.
  4. Serve immediately, topped with tortilla strips.

 

Yields: 2 Servings
