Chinese Chicken Salad

Kelly Torres


Everyone loves this salad. Everytime we have a pot luck I'm always asked to bring this. The recipe calls for iceburg lettuce, but I prefer to use a combination of iceburg and romaine. Also, I have a friend who loves to add mandarin oranges for a little sweetness. I hope you enjoy!

pinch tips: How to Core a Head of Lettuce


chicken breasts - boiled, drained, cooled and shredded.
1 large
head of iceburg lettuce, sliced thin
green onions, chopped
1/4 c
toasted sesame seeds
1/2 pkg
wonton wrappers


4 Tbsp
2 tsp
4 Tbsp
white vinegar
1 tsp
black pepper
1/2 c
vegetable oil

Directions Step-By-Step

Make dressing first.
Dissolve sugar, salt, vinegar and pepper in a small sauce pan over low heat. Remove and let cool. Pour into a container with a lid. Add oil when cool.
While dressing is cooling, fry wonton wrappers in 2 inches of oil in a small fry pan over medium heat. They will cook quickly so be sure to watch them closely. Remove from oil when they are only slightly brown, they will continue to cook while they cool. Place them on a plate covered in paper towels to absorb excess oil.
In a large bowl, combine, lettuce, green onions, chicken and sesame seeds. When wontons are cooled, place in a large ziplok bag, seal and crush up wontons into bite size pieces. Add to salad.
Shake up dressing so it is combined. Pour on salad, toss and enjoy.
