Hi, I’m Julie Deily, a former software engineer turned freelance recipe developer and food photographer. I’ve been blogging at The Little Kitchen since December 2009 and love to share easy to make meals that are indulgent enough to call comfort food. Follow me on twitter and instagram.
I saw the recipe on the Better Homes and Garden website for Tangerine Tare-Glazed Grilled Chicken Salad back in May and I printed it out immediately. I wanted to try it because I have never made a salad with udon noodles before. Once I had the wonderful opportunity to guest post on Delish Dish, I knew what recipe I wanted to blog about!
I couldn’t find tangerines or snow peas at my grocery store so I opted to change it up by using oranges and asparagus. This salad is bursting with flavor and has so many different textures, I’m completely in love with it. From the udon noodles to the orange slices, the crunch napa cabbage and the wonton crisps.
I made the glaze and salad dressing and then boiled the noodles. After I boiled and drained the noodles, I returned the pot to the stove with water and once the water was boiling, I added the asparagus (cleaned and cut into thirds) and only cooked it for about 60 seconds. (Drain it and run it over cold water to stop the cooking.)
I refrigerated the dressing so it would be cold. And while the chicken was grilling, I toasted the wonton shells to make crisps.
I’m completely obsessed with the wonton crisps and by the way, so is my dog, Angel. She knows when I’m snacking on them, she comes running over and asks for a bite!
For the amount of ingredients in this salad, it’s surprisingly quick to make and if you want to make it even quicker for a fast lunch or dinner, grill the chicken indoors using a grill pan.
I will be making this recipe again and again. I know you’ll enjoy it if you try it!
