Roasted chicken, crispy lettuce, cabbage, with an orange marmalade vinaigrette makes this quick and easy Chinese Chicken salad my go to meal.
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.
