EASY Chinese Chicken Salad Recipe

Chinese Chicken Salad

3-4 chicken breasts cooked and cubed
1 lb spaghetti, cooked al-dente (drain and rinse in cold water)
2 pkg cole slaw mix (diced cabbage, carrots & red cabbage/no dressing) found by the salad mixes
2 small cans of mandarins, drained
2 bunches green onion, chopped
1 1/3 cup slivered almonds (6 oz package)

Warning, this makes a HUGE batch! Like enough to feed an ARMY. I usually make a 1/2 batch, halving all the ingredients, but using the full pound of spaghetti.

Chocolate mint cookies

One of my favorite things about this time of year is holiday cookie exchanges! Here is one of my favorite cookie recipies to share!

3/4 cup butter
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
2 tablespoons water
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
2 eggs
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/4 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 (4.5 ounce) packages chocolate covered thin mints

In a saucepan over medium heat, cook the sugar, butter and water, stirring occasionally until melted. Remove from heat, stir in the chocolate chips until melted and set aside to cool for 10 minutes.

Pour the chocolate mixture into a large bowl, and beat in the eggs, one at a time. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt, stir into the chocolate mixture. Cover and refrigerate dough for at least 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets. Roll cookie dough into walnut sized balls and place 2 inches apart onto the prepared cookie sheets.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, be careful not to overbake. When cookies come out of the oven, Press one mint wafer into the top of each cookie and let sit for 1 minute. When the mint is softened, swirl with the back of a spoon or toothpick to make a pattern with the green filling of the mint wafer. For smaller cookies, break mints in half.
