{oriental chicken salad}

2 c. chicken breast, cooked and diced
1/2 head cabbage, shredded
1/2 lettuce, shredded
4-6 green onions, chopped
1 pkg chicken flavored Top Ramen
1/4 c. sesame seeds
1 pkg slivered almonds

Toss chicken, cabbage, lettuce, onions, almonds, and sesame seeds in a large salad bowl. Crush the Top Ramen noodles and set aside.
Dressing: Mix Top Ramen flavor packet, 4 T. sugar, 1/2 tsp. pepper, 2 dashes of soy sauce, 3 T. oil, and 6 T. seasoned rice vinegar. Set dressing aside until you are ready to serve. Toss lightly and add the broken Top Ramen noodles just before serving.

SO Yummy, we added this sweet red chili chinese sauce to the chicken when we were cooking it... got it from Trader Joe's $1.29 One of our best purchases to date. Tastes good with anything chinese. Had to make it with Fried rice in order to make it substantial enough a meal for Nate, but Nate LOVED it.

We just stick cold rice in a fry pan with some oil, green onions and whatever else we want in it, pork, peas, carrots, chicken (all of these would be previously cooked - it's whatever's leftover in our fridge) and let it brown a little, add the egg last and then a little soy sauce to give it a little better color. Yummy... it turns out different every time, but yummy.
