Doesn't this kid look like a baby chimpanzee? I really need to get some more videos of him to put up. He is getting funnier and funnier.
And here's another recipe. I'm in dire need of some too- so post your summer favorites, please!!
It's been significantly warmer the past few days and I just haven't been in the mood to use the oven or eat anything hot for dinners. One of my favorite foods EVER is the bbq chicken salad from CPK so tonight we made it. It was FABULOUS and so so easy. The recipe calls for two items that we altered. #1 - fried tortilla strips. I had wonton wrappers on hand so I BAKED and salted them and added those. they were tasty and better for you. And #2- creamy herb ranch dressing. Too complicated for me to make- and not so healthy. We substituted low fat sour cream and hidden valley ranch mix.
(measurements can all be altered to fit your ingredients/wants)
1/2 head iceberg lettuce, shredded fine
1/2 head romaine lettuce leaves, shredded fine
1 pound jicama, cut into thin strips
2 cups Monterey Jack (or any) cheese, shredded
1 cup black beans - rinsed and drained (canned works)
1 cup corn kernels, drained (canned works)
3 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped
2 pounds tomatoes, diced
1/2 cup barbecue sauce
1/4 cup green onions, thinly sliced
Oh- and we didn't have jicama- but I think it really makes the salad. Next time I'll get it for sure!
I just sauteed the chicken in garlic- then let it cool, shred it, and mixed it up with sweet baby ray's brown sugar bbq sauce. Mix the whole salad up- add your ranch and more bbq sauce as sauce. Such a wonderful summer dinner.
