My husband made the best tasting grilled chicken salad the other night. It was the perfect mix of tangy and sweet and savory and the calorie count was perfect, since I am still trying to lose those last pounds that have made best friends with my body over the years. This is his recipe, thrown together… As I am not a professional recipe writer, I hope this recipe is fairly easy to follow…
Asian Noodle Salad with Grilled Chicken
- 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts
- 1 tsp ponzu
- 1 tsp rice vinegar
- 1/2 tsp ground ginger
- 1/2 tsp dry mustard
- 1 tsp toasted sesame oil
- 1 tsp fish sauce
Cut chicken into 4 oz. portions. Mix all of the ingredients (except the chicken) in a bowl and then place the chicken into the mixture to marinate in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
Then mix the following ingredients together in a separate bowl:
- 2 fl. oz rice vinegar
- 1 fl. oz toasted sesame oil
- 10 grams garlic
- 10 grams fresh ginger
- 2 Tbsp lime juice
Grill the chicken, allow to cool and then cut into small strips suitable for a salad.
To build the salad, you will need the following:
- 150 grams rice noodles, prepared according to the instructions and allowed to chill
- 75 grams blanched snow peas
- 15 grams green onion, chopped
- 12 grams fresh cilantro, chopped
- 10 grams pickled carrots, julienned
Mix all of the above ingredients in a large bowl with the dressing made earlier. Coat everything thoroughly. Separate the noodle salad onto three plates and then place a third of the chicken on each plate on top of the noodles.
