Lettuce and Corn Salad With Homemade Chicken Tocino

For the last couple of days I have been trying to eat healthier by having salad as my dinner, however  last night I must confess I enjoyed several yummy Chinese dishes including delicious fried rice. Now back to my salad days, most of the time I would make a simple vinaigrette, but the other night I decided to make a lettuce and corn salad with sour cream dressing and paired with homemade chicken tocino.  I made the salad without a recipe just whipped up a dressing from the stuff I found in the fridge and pantry.  Loved how satisfying this hearty salad turned out. 

The recipe for the chicken tocino I found in a magazine advertorial. The tocino recipe is super simple, however I know I can further improve on this next time, most likely eliminating the granules to make it healthier. 

Here is the salad recipe:

Shredded corn (preferably from the cob but canned corn will work too)
Sour Cream
Onion powder
Juice from 1 calamansi
Dash of black pepper
Dash of cayenne pepper

Combine sour cream, onion powder, calamansi juice, black and cayenne pepper. In a plate assemble lettuce and corn, then add sour cream dressing and toss everything together. Top with chicken tocino. 

Homemade Chicken Tocino Recipe:

1/2 kilo chicken breast fillet, slice into very thin strips
2 tbsp Maggi Savor, or your preferred liquid seasoning
1 8 gram sachet Maggi Magic Sarap, or your preferred flavoring granules
2 tbsps chopped garlic
2 tbsps brown sugar
Cooking oil

Marinate chicken in liquid seasoning, Maggi Magic Sarap, garlic and sugar overnight.   Then fry in hot oil. The advertorial recommends that your serve this for breakfast with fried egg and sinangag.
