|Chinese Chicken Salad|
1 medium sized romaine lettuce, washed, dried well and torn
2 cups (or more) leftover cooked chicken breast (or half of one large breast breast, boiled)
1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves (washed, dried and torn)
1/2 cup thinly cut green onion
Deep fried wonton strips**
Deep Fried Wonton Strips
1/2 package of prepared wonton skins (found in the refrigerator section) cut into strips
Heat the oil in the deep fryer (or use a small saucepan to deep fry) until very hot, approximately 365 degrees on the candy thermometer. Fry a few strips at a time. They fry very quickly so turn over once and remove when they are lightly to medium brown. Drain on paper towel and set aside. Continue until all the strips are fried.
1 covered jar for shaking the dressing
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup rice wine vinegar or white wine vinegar
Approximately 2 tablespoons Sesame Oil
Approximately 1 tablespoon Hawaiian Salt (or less if you prefer)
Pepper to taste
Shake all ingredients in the covered jar until well blended.
Place torn lettuce in a large salad bowl or individual bowls if you prefer. Top with chicken, cilantro, green onions and deep fried wonton strips. Shake dressing again and pour over the salad. Serve immediately. Serves approximately 4 to 6.
