Salad is such wonderful food because it is so forgiving, you can add pretty much any vegetable and with the right sauce, it can turn into magic. Well, Asian inspired sauces are some of my favorites and they just happen to go really well with veggies and chicken. This Chinese Chicken Salad recipe is a keeper, and my husband proclaimed it “counter pounding good” — that’s pretty much a 5-star rating!

Ingredients

  4. Allow to sit and marinate.
  5. In a medium skillet, cook the shredded chicken with some olive oil and aminos to add moisture and flavor. EVOO is not a high heat oil, so keep the heat just high enough to warm the chicken. Add a little garlic if you like. I sometimes do.

Notes

This Chinese Chicken Salad lasts in the fridge for 2 days. I like to store the chicken and the veggies in separate containers and then warm the chicken again later. It lasts longer that way.
