ORIENTAL CHICKEN SALAD
Applebee's Restaurant Copycat Recipe
Makes 2 large dinner salads
Oriental Salad Dressing:
1/4 cup mayonnaise
4 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons sesame seed oil
1 teaspoon toasted sesame seed oil
2 boneless, skinless chicken breast
3 cups chopped romaine lettuce
1 cup red cabbage
1 cup Napa cabbage
1/2 carrot, julienned or shredded
1 green onion, chopped
1 Tablespoon sliced almonds
1/3 cup chow mien noodles
Make the Salad Dressing: In a medium sized bowl combine sugar, and rice wine vinegar, and mix until sugar is completely dissolved. Add remaining ingredients and stir until well blended.(Refrigerate salad dressing in a covered container for up to one week.)
Grill the Chicken: Heat a George Foreman Indoor Grill. Cook chicken until done. Place fully cooked chicken breasts onto a plate, and allow to rest for 4 to 5 minutes before slicing.
Prepare the Salad: Prepare salad by tossing the chopped romaine with the chopped red cabbage, Napa cabbage, and carrots. Sprinkle sliced green onion on top of the lettuce. Sprinkle almonds over the salad, then the chow mien noodles. Cut the chicken into small bite-size chunks. Place the chicken onto the salad forming a pile in the middle. Serve with salad dressing on the side.
