My Asian-style salad dressing

This one is very simple. Perfect for a chicken salad with some chow mein noodles or a stir fry.

Alternately you can use it as the dressing for an asian-style coleslaw (see also: coming soon)

What you’ll need:

  • 1/4 C. Rice or white wine Vinegar
  • 1/3 C. Vegetable Oil
  • 2 t. Soy Sauce
  • 1 t. Garlic (minced)
  • 1 t. Ginger (grated)

A whisk or stick blender

To make:

Add the ingredients together and blend until the mixture has emulsified.

A stick blender (or immersion blender) makes this immensely easier. But if all you have is a whisk I would suggest rolling it between your two palms as if you were making snakes out of clay to get the most whisk for your energy.

Simple Chicken Enchiladas

These chicken enchiladas are something that my mother has made for years and I’ve only slightly changed to align with my adult tastes. But they are easy enough and tame enough that even the most picky eaters will be pleased with your effort and you’ll not break a sweat.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • A large casserole dish (8″ x 12″-ish)
  • A skillet and butter
  • 1 package of at least ten ‘burrito’ sized tortillas
  • 1 10oz. can of chicken breast
  • 1 10.5oz. can of cream of chicken soup
  • 18oz sour cream
  • 1 7oz. can of green diced green chiles (get the smaller can if your brood is ultra sensitive to the slightest spice)
  • 1/2 C. green onions [sliced]
  • 1/2 C. Pico De Gallo
  • 3/4 C. cheddar or colby jack cheese [grated]
  • 1/2 C. milk
  • 1/2 t. salt
