Warm sticky-sweet chicken, sweet oranges, crisp green lettuce, cilantro and almonds are piled high in this simple salad. I made a quick White Balsamic Dressing to toss with the salad and the flavors worked great together.
When Lori Lange offered to send me a copy of her book, The RecipeGirl Cookbook, I jumped at the chance to check it out. I love Lori’s cooking style and I knew that I’d find countless recipes to tempt me.

I had a heck of a time deciding what to make first! I’ve already bookmarked the Shrimp Tacos with Chipotle Cream, Slow Cooker Carnitas, Cranberry Almond Granola, Triple Berry Salad, Orange Basil Mojitos, Irish Cream Brownies, Sugar Spice Drop Doughnuts and many more I want to try soon!
My family has a thing for sticky sweet chicken, so as soon as I saw Lori’s recipe for Sticky Sweet Chicken Wings, I knew that was the one for us. The chicken turns out so tender, it will almost fall apart on you when you are ready to serve it. I tossed the cooked chicken into a very simple chopped salad with mandarin oranges, almonds, cilantro and a white balsamic vinaigrette. I really enjoyed this salad and happily ate it for lunch the following day as well.
