Try this crunchy, refreshing salad. Packed with protein and Asian flavours, it’s as tasty as it is pretty. Serve with Chinese chicken salad dressing.

  1. In “Instructions”, the recipe should say “add chicken breasts” to pot with the spices and bring to boil? I’m assuming you add the chicken to the pot because the recipe goes on to say “set chicken aside until it’s cool enough to handle”.

  2. Why don’t you have a “print” icon that allows printing of a single page. This is the main COMPLAINT I have about your website! Please FIX IT!!!
