EZCR #1 – ENOKI MUSHROOMS WITH CHICKEN SALAD

 'EZCR' is abbreviation for Easy Chinese Recipes.  From now on, I will be cooking more easy Chinese dishes with simple ingredients, the easy way yet tasty for the family.  I will try to cook the dishes in more healthy ways with some modifications to the cooking methods, ingredients etc.  
At times, I just love cooking homey dishes in the simplest way with ingredients that are easily available, cheap and affordable, especially suitable for families living on a tight budget with no compromise to healthy living.  With this kind of recipes they can get to enjoy tasty home-cooked food for their families.  The proportion of the ingredients are also healthy and nutritious, suitable for people of all ages.

Lovely and light salad dish with 3 main ingredients – chicken breast meat, firm beancurd and Enoki mushrooms.

The salad dressing is light and aromatic. Mix with the other ingredients, it is a good salad dressing with is not too sweet or oily but fragrant.
