Chinese Chicken Salad

1 packet rice sticks * roast chicken, skinned, de-boned and flaked * bunch scallions *1 English cucumber, chopped *4 T sesame seeds, toasted *1 pkt flaked almonds, toasted * 1 pkt Ramen noodles * romaine lettuce, roughly chopped *oil for deep frying *cilantro

Heat a saucepan with oil to measure about 2-3 inches. Test with a small rice stick. If it puffs up immediately, the oil is the correct temperature. Break the rice sticks into manageable portions and deep fry. Drain on paper towels and set aside. Break up the Ramen noodles and place on a baking sheet. Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 10 minutes until golden brown. Place the rest of the ingredients in a large bowl except the almonds, sesame seeds and Ramen noodles and toss with the dressing. Pile on individual plates or one large platter, scatter with crispy noodles, sesame seeds and toasted almonds. Scatter a few leaves of cilantro, drizzle a little more dressing and serve.

Sweet and Sour Peanut Dressing

1 cup oil * 1/2 cup vinegar * 1/2 cup sugar * 1/4 cup soy sauce *2 tsp mustard powder *1 T peanut butter *dash of salt and black pepper

Whisk all together.

    Awesome! Whenever I get obsessive about something I start to cook and focus my energy on the colors flavors sizzles, and the positive thoughts start filtering in 🙂
