Writing Exercise 2 - Asian Chicken Salad.
The recipe that I chose was Asian Chicken Salad. I love Chinese food and I think that one day in time this would be a great dish to make.
What you will need-
2 tablespoons brown sugar.
2 teaspoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon sesame oil.
1/4 cup vegetable oil.
3 tablespoons rice vinegar.
Package Dried Rice Noodles
1 head iceberg lettuce
4 boneless chicken breast halves
3 green onions
First you combine brown sugar , soy sauce, sesame oil, salad oil, and rice vinegar to make the salad dressing. Then you prepare the chicken noodles. You will heat a skillet with a few teaspoons of oil. You'll break off the noodles and fry them together. When they begin to puff use a towel to drain them. Once you have cooked the noodles add them to the salad mixture. In a large bowel you will combine iceberg lettuce , cook and shredded chicken, green onions, and toasted sesame seeds. Just before serving add the cooked noodles.
I picked this recipe because it was from a different culture. I wanted to try something different that I have never heard of. It is very traditional. It is used sometimes has a whole meal. Other times salad is unknown in other parts of Asia. They are carefully arranged on a platter. The appearance matters a lot.
