  5. Divide the pot stickers into 4 soup bowls. Ladle the rest of the soup evenly among the bowls. Garnish with sesame oil, sriracha sauce and the scallions. Serve.

Asian Chicken Salad

Chinese chicken salad has become a classic in all of its incarnations. ¬†Recipes have included Ramen noodles, cole slaw mix, and crispy fried chicken. This doesn’t have any of those. It was inspired by a recipe in Fine Cooking Magazine, but I took it in quite a different direction. And I made it lighter and a little healthier to boot.

This recipe starts with red cabbage, broccoli (not pictured), red peppers, and carrots along with green onions.

DIGITAL CAMERAThe veggies are shredded or thinly sliced and combined with a peanut butter infused dressing. The P.B. providing the only extra fat in this recipe by the way. DIGITAL CAMERAGrilled chicken tenders provide the protein and almonds and crisp rice noodles adorn it all.DIGITAL CAMERAThis recipe takes a bit of time, but it is worth it. The dressing and chicken can be prepared ahead which can save some time on the day you prepare the salad. The ginger gives this dish a bit of a zing, but you could also add some chili action if you like heat with your zing. You know the drill…make it your own.¬†Seasoning the vegetables and letting them drain is key to the recipe in my opinion, so don’t skip that step. ¬†
