Taco Bell Cinnabon Delights...

I split some with the family and we all really liked them. So yummy! Ours had time to cool down while eating. I wish it came more than 4 to an order. :)

How can I change recipe to omit the MSG?

Thank you all for the great ideas. I do need to check my grilled chicken strips.

As for why I have removed MSG from my diet, my Dr had me read a passage from a book about MSG and neuron death. Here is a review of the book http://americannutritionassociation.o... . I already manage depression caused from neurons not receiving serotonin properly. Sorry if TMI. So avoiding MSG can't hurt. It does cause my husband headaches as well.

How can I change recipe to omit the MSG?

One of my favorite recipes my aunt makes has MSG in it. How can I substitute the ramen noodle seasoning in this Asian salad recipe?

2 chicken breasts cooked and chopped (I use Southwestern Grilled strips)
2 oz toasted slivered almonds
1 package shredded cabbage mixture
2 green onions chopped
Ramon Noodles (Chicken Flavor)
(I put the ramon noodles in a sandwich bag and hit them with a rolling pin to crumble them up smaller)

Mix all of the above together


3 tablespoons wine vinegar
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
*1 package of seasoning mix (from the Ramon Noodles)*
3 tablespoons sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil

Refrigerate 1 hour
