Take it away, Jaime…
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
- 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
- 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.
