8 boneless, skinless, chicken breasts marinated in teriyaki sauce 4- 8 hours. ( I used 5 breasts – that was plenty)
1 lb pea pods (blanch for 30 seconds – dump into boiling water for 30 seconds just to ever so lightly cook to remove waxiness – turns brighter green.)
2 red peppers sliced
4 celery stacks cut diagonally
1 bunch green onion (cut)
½ cup sliced water chestnut (equals one can)
Small sliced mushrooms
When ready to serve, mix the sauce with above ingredients.
2 clove garlic, minced
1 teaspoon powder sugar
1 cup sugar
½ cup soy sauce
1 cup vegetable oil and 2 Tablespoon sesame oil
Blend ingredients all but oil until caramelized; add oil when ready to serve. Shake ingredients in container and pour over salad and toss to coat. Let ingredients mingle together in refrigerator before serving.
Arrange above ingredients over lettuce leafs that line your salad bowl than top with mandarin oranges followed by Chinese noodles.
