It's late! Let's get this party started...what's for dinner Thurs

9 years ago

What did you prepare tonight?

I copied Panera's Asian Chicken salad. It's really a nothing salad that has become DH's favorite lately.

It's lettuce, chicken, and crispy noodles. It's supposed to have sesame seeds but this was lacking last time we were there. They use an Oriental dressing and this is where things got tricky.

Side story for the dressing. So, I googled Asian dressing and pick one that sounded good. You would think that after cooking all these years I would realize this recipe makes a vat of dressing! But the kicker was, it was too salty. I had my DD test it and we both agreed. Ugh.
This time I googled sesame oil dressing and came up with a better match.

DH really enjoyed it. I used a Costco chicken, so this was a very simple dinner.

What was on your plate?
