When I first moved to Los Angeles, several of my friends were regulars at Chin Chin restaurant, which is famous for its chinese chicken salad. One bite of this crisp, crunchy, fresh salad and you’ll immediately understand why it’s so darn popular.
I’m always trying to think of recipes that our entire family can eat together (this is yet another one of my tips for getting your little ones to eat since they love to have what mommy and daddy are having) and this one is a winner in my house. This is one of those dishes that Kenya better eat quick or Mommy and Daddy are definitely going to get to it first.
Steaming the chicken breast is the most complicated part — this recipe couldn’t be easier. The salad is packed with vitamin packed veggies and the dressing is almost creamy. You would never imagine a toddler eating “salad,” but trust me, this will change their minds.

    1. I just made this, eating it as I type. OMGosh, it is so, so good! Stop what you’re doing and go make it! I can’t wait to share it with my daughter.

    2. Hi,
      Where is it that you see the Nutritional Information? I wanted to try this and add the info to My Fitness Pal (I can’t find it specifically already entered) and didn’t see it in the cookbook or online; however this question makes me think it must be available somewhere. Am I missing it?

      Thank you!
