Applebee’s Oriental Chicken Salad

I wasn’t sure I would really like this, but found it very satisfying even with all the cabbage.

Oriental Dressing:
6 Tbsp. honey
3 Tbsp. rice wine vinegar
1/2 cup fat-free mayonnaise
2 tsp. Grey Poupon Dijon mustard
1/2 tsp. sesame oil

Marinade:
2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
3 Tbsp. honey
3 Tbsp. rice vinegar
Grill seasoning

Salad:
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
4 cups chopped romaine lettuce
2 cups chopped red cabbage
2 cups chopped Napa cabbage
1/2 cup shredded carrot
1 bunch green onions, chopped
4 Tbsp. sliced almonds, toasted
1 cup crispy chow mein noodles

Blend together dressing ingredients. Put in refrigerator to chill. Cut chicken breasts into long strips. Combine oil, honey, and vinegar and coat chicken strips. Sprinkle liberally with grill seasoning. Refrigerate while chopping the vegetable. Combine lettuce, cabbages, and carrot in a large bowl. Spray a frying pan with Pam and heat to medium high. Saute chicken strips on both sides till browned and cooked through. Set aside. Sprinkle green onions on top of salad, then toasted almonds and chow mein noodles. Top with warm chicken strips. Serve dressing on the side.

    Wow, Care! All of these great recipes. Makes me wish I had more time to cook. Next time could you add approximate prep and cooking time so I know if I should even attempt?! I think I will try some of these. Keep ‘em coming!
