Sub chicken if you must…

June 7, 2009

I have this sneaking suspicion that most people who read my blog may not actually “go all out” like I do.  In fact, I think I fair amount of you readers actually eat meat.  Correct me if I’m wrong.  Please.

Here’s the thing: I debated posting this recipe for chicken salad.  Well, really, Chik’N’Salad, because I’ve yet to blog a meat-filled-recipe.  And if there’s one thing I hate when I’m looking at potential meals, it is recipes that include the line:

start with 1 recipe of chik’n patties


Ugh.  As if the recipe itself isn’t hard enough, I have to begin with a total new recipe just to get to the starting point.  Pass.  TYVM.

BUT the chik’n salad was nice.  So I decided to share.  Just your regular, old, handy-dandy salad.  Nothing exotic.  No mandarin oranges.  No rehydrated cranberries.  Just a little vital wheat gluten and off you go.  You know, normal pantry supplies.  (This is sarcasm, people.  Everyone is constantly asking me where I get the vital wheal gluten.  Really.  Wal-mart, by the way, carries it.  But I know you don’t shop there due to moral reasons, so you can pick it up at your haughty-taughty supermarket.)

So, sub the chik’n patties with 2 cups of cubed chicken, and you, too, can enjoy this salad recipe.

    I have yet to get vital wheat!… and really? Walmart?! I definitely need to check it out once I get to the burbs (where our nearest Walmart is) (I’ve missed commenting on your blog for a bit so it’s so good to have some time and catch up with all your cooking/baking! :) )

    I admit that I’m not one who goes “all out” in the way that you do, but I sure do like to watch you do it!!!!

    I go all out! I am veggie, and my husband does eat meat on occasion (though not in the house, that’s a no-no for us, but to each their own!) I have tried the vegan steak. I may have kneaded it too long because it was a bit tough and spongy, but I’ll try it again, and the Chick’n recipe is on my fridge, waiting to be made. Keep them coming!
