Another Asian Favorite to Add to the List!

I'll say it again - God love the 101 things to do with Ramen cook book! We find more fun and tasty recipes from that book.

I'm so lax in posting that this recipe has to be easily from before the holidays!

Oriental Chicken Salad

1 package ramen noodles - any flavor - we used two

1 cup slivered almonds - we just used a couple of tablespoons

1 tsp. vinegar - we used rice wine vinegar for the oriental flair

1/2 cup oil - I only used about a quarter cup total and did a mix of canola oil and sesame oil

3 tsp. seasoned salt - we just used a pinch of kosher salt

1/2 tsp pepper

3 T sugar - I only used 1

*ADD* Add about 2-3 T soy sauce for the dressing items above - you'll tahnk me later! Even a pinch of dried ginger is good to add here

4 cups shredded cooked chicken breast - just used some leftover roster chicken - and like only 2 cups

3-6 green onions sliced - we used 3

3/4 cup sliced celery - we omitted this and added a can of water chestnuts instead

1/4 cup sesame seeds - we just added a T or so

1/2 head lettuce shredded

Cook noodles and drain. Roast almonds until lightly browned on stove top or in oven.

In a bowl mix vinegar, oil, salt, pepper, and sugar - add the soy sauce here. Add the chicken, onion, celery and sesame seeds. Add lettuce just before serving and toss.

Makes 2 hearty servings.
