3 cups roasted chicken breast, shredded

3 cups green leaf lettuce, chopped

1 head Napa cabbage shredded

1 medium bag of coleslaw, about 3 cups

1/2 cup scallion, chopped

1/2 cup almonds, sliced

1/2 pack of wontons, fried

1 cup cooking oil

chow mein noodles, fried to garnish

For the Vinaigrette:

1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil

4 tablespoons soy sauce, low sodium

4 tablespoons honey

3 tablespoons rice wine vinegar

2 tablespoons red wine vinegar

2 tablespoons hoisin sauce

2 tablespoons sesame oil

2 tablespoons orange marmalade

2 teaspoons garlic, minced

2 teaspoons ginger, minced

1 teaspoon black pepper

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon onion powder

1 teaspoon chili powder


Heat oil over medium heat, fry wontons until light brown, drain, and set aside.

Add vinaigrette ingredients to a lidded jar, shake well.

Toss shredded chicken with around 2 tablespoons of vinaigrette.

Wash and spin all salad greens until completely dry.

Add greens to a large bowl top with chicken and remaining ingredients.

Serve with extra vinaigrette plus wontons and chow mein noodles.


The salad can be tossed with the vinaigrette if serving immediately. Otherwise,  I would suggest you wait until you’re ready to serve to toss the salad with the vinaigrette, top with wontons, and chow mein.
