Dee's Chinese Chicken Salad

Dee Stillwell


This salad is a refreshing full meal salad. When we grill chicken breasts We always grill extra ones so we can have this salad the next day. This is especially convenient when it a hot summer day, and you don't want to heat up the house when making dinner.
