I made this on 6/09/09 for the " Summer Salad Snapshots "event and for my dinner. I did make a couple of changes due to what was on hand.Instead of the red pepper, some freezer dried red/green peppers were reconstituted and used. For the canned chicken, some leftover boneless fried chicken was diced up and used. Mixed everything together, and let chill for about 3 or 4 hours.Tasted, and decided it needed some more salt and pepper. I did add about 1/4 cup more of mayo to add a bit more moisture. Served with some iceburg lettuce and a slice of tomato on a homemade roll. I really enjoyed this different way of using ramen noodles. This will be made again. Thanks for posting and, " Keep Smiling :) "
Great flavor! For me I brought in chicken, noodles and mayo to work and at lunch time I had fun picking up stuff from our salad bar to put in this recipe. Whipped it up in no time at all. Thanks to pick a chef I chose this recipe to try. I look forward to making this recipe again.
I LOVED this recipe. More importantly, my whole family loved it. I was surprised because my husband doesn't like mayo...he either didn't guess it was in there or didn't care! I give this recipe even more credit for being very budget conscious. I opted to serve this in tortilla wraps and took them for a 'to-go' type dinner - on one of those ultra busy nights. I halved all of the ingredients and still had plenty to serve 4 people. If you are looking for an EASY and INEXPENSIVE dinner or lunch, this would be the perfect recipe.
