    T. Woolfe's Note:

    Well yasee I had this uncooked half chicken breast left from yesterdays experiments. Also the temperature is all ready in the mid 80s and upward bound. A souped up chicken salad seemed like a good idea for a main dish. I use my WOK a lot, particularly when it's hot out. I invented a chopped cashew salad dressing for this sort of thing some time back. It's rather good for fruit type salads . So Here we go, written as I fix it. A lot of my recipes are done this way typing notes into textpad as I work/invent.(Grynn)This is a BIG serving salad main dish or there's enough chicken for 2.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1/2 large b&s chicken breast, cut in about 1 inch bite sized pieces
    • 1/2 tablespoon oil, for woking the chicken
    • 1/2 cup drained mandarin orange segments, usually canned
    • 1 cup mixed greens, the crisper the better,like iceberg or romain,depending on what available
    • 1 hard-boiled egg, diced because i had it to use up (optional)

    For the dressing (this makes enough to save some)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Fire up the WOK and chow the chicken chunks until cooked through and set aside.
    2. 2
      Remember this time it will have no additional cooking.
    3. 3
      If you have cooked chicken use it.
    4. 4
      A Woolfe Tip, when B&Schicken breasts are cheap, I chunk, WOK, and vac-bag freeze for later use.
    5. 5
      Put all the dressing ingredients in a blender or small food processor and ZAP until blended.
    6. 6
      I throw the cashews in as is, as I buy the pieces it's a lot cheaper that way.
    7. 7
      You can do both the Chicken and dressing ahead of time.
    8. 8
      Tear up the greens into a bowl.
    9. 9
      Add the orange segments and cooled chicken.
    10. 10
      Toss with the dressing.
    11. 11
      I had this with some torn off bread.

      You MUST try this salad dressing. I used fruit, chicken, salad greens and then added our favorite salad ingredients. I could est this dressing with a spoon. It makes tons so there'll be lots left for your next salad.
