My cooking style is based on the ingredients that I have available in my pantry, fridge and freezer at the time. I create as I go and pretty much eyeball all the ingredients I like to add. I called this recipe "Angie’s Asian Salad". You can add anything else you like as well. It is savory and delicious!
Asian Chicken (Approximately cost of ingredients: $6.00)
In a small bowl add the following ingredients:
5 chicken tenders cut in 1”
1/4-cup soy sauce
1/4 cup lemon juice
8 chopped garlic cloves
1/4 c. olive oil
Marinate for at least 15 minutes, (while you prep. the veggies).
After 15 minutes, drain the marinade and stir-fry the chicken tender pieces until golden. Carefully add the marinate in low until it cooks thoroughly and set aside.
On a separate medium large bowl add the following ingredients:
6 fresh (cleaned) asparagus chopped in 1” at an angle
10 fresh (cleaned) snow peas chopped in 1” at an angle
1/2 Orange Bell Pepper in slices
1/2 red onion very finely chopped
1 clove of garlic very finely chopped.
1/2 package of your favorite pasta cooked by following the package instructions, drained while it is still very hot. Pour over your bowl of vegetables to blanch and cover. Do not stir for at least 5 minutes. After 5 minutes, add the Asian chicken.
EXTRA: Add the following to the pasta: Eyeball Olive oil, capers and olives, red wine vinegar, lemon juice. Stir from the bottom up until all ingredients are blended and if you like it and also have it available in your fridge, add marinated Mozzarella cheese balls. Finally, add a good tablespoon of sesame oil. If needed adjust the saltiness by using soy sauce.
