Yummers!!!! The whole family loved it! The only thing I would do different is probably cook the chicken in the marinade in a saucepan. (It burned easily in the skillet). This will be a regular in our home!

This salad was just OK. I felt like it really needed something else for more flavor & more ingredients. I was in a hurry, so I didn't have time to experiment, maybe next time if I make it again. I did add snow peas chopped up in bite sized pieces to add a little something, but it still needed more.

My husband and I thought this was really great as is. All the flovors reallt went great together. I marinaded the chicken for 3 hours and used clementines instead of mandarin oranges. I would eat this every day!

This was very easy to make and lots of wonderful flavors. One tiny bit of only need a small amount of the Sesame Ginger dressing. It poured out too quickly and it was a bit over-powering. (totally our fault though) Otherwise, all other flavors were delicious. To avoid cleaning my pan and save some time after cooking the chicken, I think I'll just saute the noodles, almonds & scallions in the same pan. Maybe it will absorb some of the yummy drippings. There were only two of us and we still have enough for one more left-over salad tomorrow.

OMG! I'm not really in to spinach but this salad was AWESOME. Had a hard time finding the sesame ginger dressing so I used simple Asian ginger dressing. Great dish!

Ah, this is okay. I used two whole breasts. No almonds or sesame seeds or oil, I used soy sauce and regular spinach and 1 whole onion. I also didn't use Mandarin oranges and I also used the soy sauce for dressing. When or if I decide to make this again, I may get all of the correct ingreidients.
