Chinese Chicken Salad

I made Chinese Chicken Salad for dinner last night. I had a basic idea of ingredients I wanted to use, so I Googled a few recipes and took an inventory of what else I should use. This is what I came up with (we loved it):

Ingredients:

2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
Bag of romaine lettuce
Small can of mandarin oranges
Package of uncooked wonton squares
Sliced almonds (toasted)
Sliced green onions
Vegetable oil (for frying wontons)
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
1 tablespoon sesame oil
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1.5 teaspoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon red pepper
1 teaspoon toasted sesame seeds

Preparation:

Slice wonton squares into thin strips. Heat vegetable oil on stove on high or in an electric fondue pot on high. Fry wonton strips in oil until brown and crispy. Saute chicken breasts until cooked through. Chop chicken into medium sized pieces. Arrange lettuce on two plates. Top lettuce with chicken, wontons, toasted almonds, green onions and oranges. Put remaining ingredients (soy sauce through sesame seeds) in a container with a lid and shake to mix. Split dressing over two salads. Love it!!

  1. That looks absolutely lovely. I need to start doing this with the recipes I try! I love the idea of Chinese Chicken Salad..but I’m not a fan of the sesame dressings.. Chris loves them though..and would be jealous to know you were munching on those! I would absolutely love a scallion ranch or something similar in place of the sesame dressing.
