Danielle's Chinese Chicken Salad

Sorry, no picture.

I have to admit, I wasn't at all diligent in actually following the recipe. I kind of used it as a starting point and then went with the ingredients I had on hand and the time I had available. That said, it turned ok but not great. Max said he liked it pretty well though.

I didn't add chow mien noodles because I didn't have any. I threw in toasted sliced almonds instead. I also didn't plan ahead enough to have time for the chicken to marinate, and I think that would've made the salad better. I was actually in a hurry, so I only had time to throw it all together once the chicken was done cooking. My chicken was still warm when I ate the salad, which I think was a little weird. Cooled marinated chicken would've been a lot better.

That's what I get for not reading the recipe ahead of time. If I try this salad again, I'll definitely follow the directions better next time. :)
