cold asian chicken salad recipe needed - quickly
Hey fellow chowhounds- Help
I have lost an old favorite recipe for a cold chicken salad that had a peanut sauce, finely chopped peanuts, finely shredded lettuce and a few other ingredients.
I want to serve this for the holidays, but when I went to the cookbook, that page was never put back!
I first had this in a Chinese restaurant in San Francisco and spent two years getting a recipe that was close.
Any help, suggestions, ideas etc, would be helpful.
Do you remember any more ingredients? There are a lot of Asian Chicken Salads out there!
