My dinner...

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!


  1. It was good. Thanks for sharing! Make sure you save that recipe.

  2. anything with soy sauce sounds gooood to me! I might try this!

  3. From what I know about you, I think you are seriously underestimating the amount of Soy Sauce you really put into your salad. However it sounds delicious (minus the vag oil, what is that? Nevermind, don't want to know).

    An all time favorite of mine to take to school for lunch is LEFT-OVERS! Cook a larger dinner than normal every night and just microwave the leftovers in the UCC. Don't eat all of the larger than average dinner no matter how tempted, the whole plan falls to pisces.
