    Bobbie's Note:

    Every good cook needs a recipe for Chinese Chicken Salad at her fingertips. I thought I'd share mine with you. The dressing is divine. This never fails to please! I usually roast a chicken in the oven for this -- but if I'm running short on time, I'll pick up a roasted chicken at the grocery store or Costco. I normally double the dressing part of the recipe -- just so I don't come up short.

      I can't believe I haven't rated this! I have used this recipe no less than 6 times and love it! Definitely double the dressing amount. I use 4 T of sugar, right in the middle. I have found I like the salad better with the dressing put on ahead of time to soften up the ramen noodles a bit. And I don't use as much canola oil as called for. Other than that, this recipe is outstanding.

      This is FABULOUS! It gets a nice crunch from the almonds and water chestnuts. I used the full amount of sugar in the dressing and it is to die for.This would be great to bring to a picnic or potluck- just make sure to dress right before serving. I'll be making this again and again!
