Quick Recap, Cooking 101 in 1001: Chinese Chicken Salad

Chinese Chicken Salad Recipe (BlogChef)

I made this for lunch on Friday. Here are the liner notes:

  • I loved it, I will absolutely be making this again.
  • I had a blast making the rice noodle puffs – I had no idea that it would be as easy as it was.  I highly recommend this to anyone looking for something to do on a Friday night. (I take it back: do it on a lazy Tuesday, go out and play on Friday).
  • I forced myself to learn how to cook chicken. (I don’t know if I mentioned this, but I am a baker and vegetarian cook by nature, I’m terrified of under-cooking meat and getting ptomaine or over-cooking it to leather, so I’ve largely hidden from it.)
  • The dressing is an exact copy of the Oriental Sesame dressing made by the facist (read, “ridiculously over-priced”) cafe in my office building.  This was not intentional, but I am thrilled I have a copy of this dressing – if I asked for an extra helping of dressing at the cafe, they acted as though I had curb-stomped their kittens.
