Oriental Orange Chicken Salad
I LOVE this salad! And when I say, "love" I mean, absolutely love, love, love this salad!! My family does too & that's why I wanted to share this recipe with you. It's super easy & super simple. Just take:
One bone-in chicken breast
1/2 cup of your favorite teriyaki marinating sauce.
1/2 cup walnuts
1/2 of an orange (peeled & segmented)
1 full cup of brocolli, gently steamed & chopped
2 cups of romaine lettuce leaves or mix greens
Makes 2 to 4 servings
And then as a finishing touch, I usually like to take about an additional half cup of the marinade and bring it to a low simmer over medium-high heat in a saucepan. I remove it from the heat and add a tablespoon of plain rice wine vinegar, one tablespoon of honey, and one teaspoon of orange zest. Then drizzle it over your salad and enjoy! This salad is full of texture and contrasting flavors. It's filling but yet light at the same time. I hope that your family enjoys it as much as mine does.
Happy baking, happy cooking & happy fresh ingredients!
