Barefoot Bloggers: Chinese Chicken Salad

I know, I know, I'm late. And it's been almost 2 weeks since I've posted anything on here. It's not that I died or anything. Just been busy. I have made a few things, I just haven't blogged about them. Here's a hint. I took a pastry making class a couple weeks ago. Since then I've attempted to remake and tweak recipes I got from the class. I didn't take any pics. But the coffee cake came out really good. One day I"ll blog about it.

Anyway, I did make the Chinese Chicken Salad. Well a half recipe. It wasn't bad. I left almost all of the salt out. And I added some sweet chili sauce to give it a little bit of a kick. Possibly because I left out the pepper and just realized it as I'm writing this.

I made quite a few adjustments, 4 chicken tenders instead of 2 breasts for a half recipe. Left out the bell peppers and garlic because I didn't have them and didn't feel like running out for them. Besides which, bell peppers have become ridiculously expensive.

It was decent. Lots of people thought there was too much peanut butter but I was OK with it. I like peanut butter. Maybe not the most authentic chinese food but still good.

Hit up one of the other barefoot bloggers or food network for the recipe. I'm lazy.

Edit: Here's the pic that has sat on my camera for a month or so now...

hahaha... I love the minimalist food blogging. I should try it sometime!

About the salad... my mom makes a "Chinese Chicken Salad" but now that I think about it, it's probably not Chinese in the slightest. :)
