Chicken Strip Salad

DSC_0125

When the heat kicks in like it did here in Shanghai over the last few days, the only thing I can think of eating is salad: pasta salad, bean salad, meat salad. Any kind is good for me as long as I don’t have to inject anything over 20 degree Celsius.

Yesterday I this chicken strip salad for lunch. It turned out as a great idea in this hot weather!

This is how I made it!

Ingredients (2 servings):

  • 1 whole chicken breast
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tbsp buttermilk
  • 1 tsp seasoned salt
  • salad mix
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 2 tbsp sour cream
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 5-6 cherry tomatoes
  • canola oil to fry

Grab your skinless, boneless chicken breast

and cut it into strips

then soak the chicken strips in about half cup of buttermilk

in an other plate place flour with seasoned salt

then drizzle in about 2 tbsp of buttermilk

Remove the chicken strip from the buttermilk and place them into the flour mixture, coating them throughly

Heat up some canola oil and fry your chicken strip a few at a time

on both sides, of course。。。。

Then remove from frying pan and place them on kitchen paper

In a big salad bowl combine olive oil, vinegard and salt

then add a coupld of tbsp of sour cream and stir to combine

Add salad mix to the bowl

a few cherry tomatoes

and stir around to dress our salad

Now just place on top of the well-dressed salad the chicken strips

And serve!

Make this this Summer!

  1. Looks good and easy, but is buttermilk something you can find in Shanghai? Haven’t seen it at City Shop, etc. before. Thanks!

    • Right you can’t find it at cityshop, that I know. But homemaking buttermilk is super easy.
      Let’s say you need one cup of buttermilk, all you need to do is pouring almost a cup of milk, then filling up the rest with white vinegar, wait about 10 mins and you will have buttermilk :)
      That’s how I make mine.
      Hope that helps
