Just another Hot weather dinner!!

DSC01702Well… I had chicken thawed out.. but since it is over a hundred degrees here today, cooking just wasn’t appealing!!  Whenever that happens I poach the chicken as early in the day as possible, let it cool, then shred it and create something!!

I was in the mood for something Asian.. No surprise there!! But my standard Chinese Chicken Salad is frankly too much work, with frying the Saifun and all.. So what to do? Invent something!! Introducing my Thai Chicken Salad!! Using what was in my kitchen and in my garden I whipped up something delicious in about fifteen minutes!!  Totally gluten and most allergen free!!

2 heads of Romaine – chopped

  1. All the great links you put up on Facebook in various places– in addition to your gorgeous, inspiring food– would you consider keeping track of such links and occasionally posting them on your blog here– then I could refer back and link to them on my blog? Just a thought. 🙂

    • Well… all of them really. I love what you post. I love the inspirational posters, I love the links and info.. it’s all such good stuff and hard to trace then retrace on Facebook. I in the past have done blog posts of links, I don’t know if people find them useful, but I would find yours useful 🙂 Am not intending however to give you extra work… just a suggestion and an abstract wish 🙂
