Asian Chicken Salad and a Treat!
First up the ingredients for the marinade
Boneless thighs are marinated in a 1/4 cup
Next up the veggies
The chicken is grilled
The veggies are tossed
and the chicken is tossed in and topped with chow mein noodles
What a great combination of flavors and I really wanted something on the lighter side since we still had one more thing on the menu!
The salad recipe was adapted from the Food Network magazine
.... and so I had promised Mr. John for 2 days that I would go here with him. Yesterday when he asked, I was in a lazy mood and in clothes not fit for being outside the house! So all day today I anticipated a yummy treat to end the weekend... and it didn't disappoint
Some of the flavors... (side note to any softball coaches - the girls working are going to have huge muscular arms - sign them up!)
Mr. John ordered Butter Pecan in a waffle cone - the cone was still warm! He loved it!
I had a S'mores in a cup... very good!
Flapdoodles is a local, one-of-a-kind, ice cream parlor - it was packed tonight. I guess the high 70 degree weather in mid-March is great for their business.... try it, you'll like it!
