This is my own creation, a can of white meat chicken seemed small & alone, so decided on sweet & sour...this is what I came up with today for lunch! It was quick, easy, and tasted great...husband ate it & said it was really good... I used red leaf lettuce, but could use romaine or any other you like.. Please try this, it's just different enough to be good!
