I’m so excited to be here guest posting for Brianne! I absolutely adore her & her blog! And I’m so happy to be able to help her out while she is enjoying spending all her time with her precious new little one!! So let me introduce myself real quick ~ I’m Jaime, the wife and momma behind Mom’s Test Kitchen, my little space in the blog-o-sphere where I share the recipes I make for my family. You won’t find anything too fancy over in my kitchen, just good simple recipes that a mom can make while stepping around a 2 year old & her puppy!

As the mom of a 2 year old, I’m always searching for quick fix dinners or simple lunches that I can eat during nap time. This chicken fits perfectly for quick & easy. Plus its so versatile! Instead of a salad, you could very easily use the chicken to make sandwiches, lettuce wraps, use it in simple pasta or rice dishes, even on top of an Asian inspired pizza! The possibilities are endless!

General Tso Chicken Salad

An Asian inspired chicken salad that could also be used to make sandwiches, lettuce wraps, in simple pasta or rice dishes, even on top of pizza.
Servings: 4

Ingredients

  • 1 & 1/2 pounds 
chicken cooked & shredded
  • 1 package 4.2 ounces 
Simply Asia General Tso Stir Fry Sauce
  • 2 tablespoons 
brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons 
orange juice
  • 2 cloves
 minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon 
ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon 
crushed red pepper flakes
  • favorite salad ingredients

Instructions

  • Mix stir fry sauce, brown sugar, orange juice, garlic, ginger, and red pepper in medium saucepan until well blended. Bring to a low boil on medium heat, stirring to dissolve sugar.
  • Toss the shredded chicken with the sauce until well coated.
  • Using your favorite salad ingredients, build a salad. Top with chicken ~ I used about 1/3 - 1/2 cup of chicken for each bowl of salad.

Notes

For my salad, I used romaine lettuce, cucumber slices, chicken, chow mein noodles & green onions. The chicken has enough flavor and sauce that you don't have to have a salad dressing if you don't want one.

    Brianne — hope you are thoroughly enjoying your maternity leave! Just yesterday I met my friends’ little one month old. Babies sure are amazing!

    Jaime — I love this salad! We went through a heat wave the last week and can’t get enough salads at the moment. This is definitely on the list for hearty dinner salads that we must try!
