So I'm BA-ROQUE right now and the soup that I took to school today did NOT fill me up..
When I returned home from school and work tonight I decided to try and make something easy that I might like to take to school for lunch. So here it is (sorry no pictures..I ate the food)
Simple Chicken Salad:
1 chicken breast [cut in strips]
a good handle or two of a salad of your choice
1-2 tablespoons of butter
1 tablespoon of sesame oil
1 tablespoon of canola oil [i didn't have any tonight, i used veg oil]
3 tablespoons of soy sauce
2 tablespoons of rice vinegar [didn't have this either, i used reg. white vinegar]
I tossed the chicken strips in the salt and pepper so that they were coated good.
Once the butter was melted in the pan I cooked the chicken in it. [I think I used too much butter in my pan, you just have to judge that for yourself.]
I removed the chicken from the heat and transferred it to a bowl in the fridge.
I laid out my salad in a bowl and made the dressing.
Mix together the vinegar, soy sauce, and oils together. For me the vinegar was a little strong. Not sure if that was because I used the regular vinegar instead. I might next time put maybe half a tablespoon in it.
When I plated the chicken on the salad I did not use all of the breast [refrigerated it]. I also did not use all of the dressing either [refrigerated it]. But the dressing I did I just drizzled it on top of the chicken and salad.
Then....I ate it!
