I think people either really like Paula Dean or they don’t…I am not her biggest fan. This recipe isn’t typical of her recipes and I think that’s why I like it so much.
9 oz. package frozen sugar snap peas
16 oz. package orzo, cooked and drained
3 c. diced, cooked chicken
3 green onions, chopped
1/2 c. vegetable oil
3 T rice wine vinegar
2 T soy sauce
2 tspn. hoisin sauce
2 oz. package slivered almonds, toasted
Cook sugar snap peas according to the directions on the package. Drain well.
In a large bowl combine sugar snap peas, orzo, chicken and green onions.
In a small bowl, whisk together oil, vinegar, hoisin sauce and soy sauce. Pour over orzo mixture tossing gently to coat.
Stir in toasted almonds.
Did I change anything? This recipe called for a can of drained and chopped water chestnuts and a diced red bell pepper which I left out. It also says to serve this salad cold which I haven’t done either.
