I've been making this heavenly salad for years. It's scrumptious and kind of girlie...perfect for bridal and baby showers. I say girlie because my husband is never quite fully satisfied after I serve this for a meal. He's back in the kitchen looking for more soon afterwards. But don't let that deter you! It's SOOOO good. You serve the chicken warm over top of the cold greens with the crunch of toasted almonds and the creamy, tangy lemon dressing. Oh, yeah.
Here's the recipe from one of my all-time favorite cookbooks. Hope you can read it OK. Note: I used a panko coating instead of flour.
See that quiche below? It was gone within 10 minutes. In our bellies. It was a partially-baked crust with balsamic-drizzled grape tomatoes, feta, swiss (i know, sounds weird, right?), & fresh spinach topped with a mixture of 4 eggs, cream, sea salt and fresh herbs (chives, oregano, basil). I'm thinking we should have it again this week!
Recipe here* and found in this lovely cookbook. *A couple of notes about the recipe: it calls for 1/2lb of unsalted butter which is TWO sticks. I'm clarifying that because someone had posted the recipe online saying that 1/2lb was one stick....fail. I always double the recipe because I make them big and they don't last long. I don't ever flatten them with a fork. And it is absolutely imperative that you bake them for exactly 17 minutes and not a moment longer. They will actually look under-baked but cool to perfection. Sorry I don't have a photo of the finished cookies! (The photo below is of energy balls NOT the cookies.)
sweet Elise's recipe if you're a recipe-needing kind of person. I do remember using ground flax, oats, peanut butter, wheat germ, cinnamon, honey, sea salt and chocolate chips.
And, finally, as long as we're on the subject of food, you'll want to know about this rad bakery in Savannah. My mom bought their cookbook for me before I left so it was much fun to see it in real life. And taste it, too. :) Us girls agreed that the best treats were the lavender sandwich cookies and the moist fresh strawberry cupcakes.
OK, I must go eat!
Have a lovely day!
