Applebee’s® Oriental Chicken Salad

imageThe recipe produces one dinner-size salad which can be easily doubled or quadrupled for additional servings. The dressing took some tweaking but should be just right with the mustard.

Ingredients
Oriental Dressing
3 tablespoons honey
1 1/2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 teaspoon Grey Poupon Dijon mustard
1/8 teaspoon sesame oil

Salad
1 egg
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup corn flake crumbs
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 boneless, skinless chicken breast half
2-4 cups vegetable oil (for frying)
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 chowmein noodles

Instructions

1. Preheat oil in deep fryer or deep pan over medium heat.
You want the temperature of the oil to be around 350 degrees.
2. Blend together all ingredients for dressing in a small
bowl with an electric mixer. Put dressing in refrigerator
to chill while you prepare the salad.
3. In a small, shallow bowl beat egg, add milk, and mix well.
4. In another bowl, combine flour with corn flake crumbs, salt
and pepper.
5. Cut chicken breast into 4 or 5 long strips. Dip each strip
of chicken first into egg mixture then into the flour mixture,
coating each piece completely.
6. Fry each chicken finger for 5 minutes or until coating has
darkened to brown.
7. Prepare salad by tossing the chopped romaine with the chopped
red cabbage, Napa cabbage, and carrots.
8. Sprinkle sliced green onion on top of the lettuce.
9. Sprinkle almonds over the salad, then the chow mein noodles.
10. 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.
Makes 1 dinner-size salad.

Applebee’s Low Fat Asian Chicken Salad

image

This salad is huge. Keep in mind that the chicken
should marinate for a few hours if you want it to taste closer to the original.

ingredients
1 cup teriyaki marinade
4 chicken breast fillets
Fat-Free Asian Dressing
2 cups water
1/2 cup granulated sugar
3 tablespoons dry pectin
1 tablespoon white vinegar
1/2 teaspoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon paprika
8 cups chopped romaine lettuce
8 cups chopped iceberg lettuce
3 cups shredded red cabbage
3 cups shredded green cabbage
2 cups shredded carrots
1 cup chopped green onion
1 1/3 cups crispy chow mein noodles

instructions

1. Combine teriyaki marinade and chicken breasts in a medium
bowl or re-sealable plastic bag. Marinate chicken for 3-4 hours.
2. Prepare the dressing by combining all of the ingredients
in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring mixture to a
rolling boil while stirring often with a whisk, then remove
the pan from the heat to cool. When dressing has cooled, pour
it into a covered container and chill.
3. When chicken breasts have marinated, preheat barbecue grill
to high heat. Grill chicken for 3-4 minutes per side, or until
done.
4. Combine the romaine and iceberg lettuce, red and green cabbage
and 1 cup of shredded carrots in a large bowl with the dressing.
Toss well.
5. Divide the tossed greens among four plates. Sprinkle 1/4 cup of
green onions over each salad, followed by 1/3 cup of crispy chow
mein noodles.
6. When the chicken breasts are done, slice each one, widthwise,
into bite-size pieces. Sprinkle the sliced chicken breasts over
each salad.
7. Place a 1/4 cup pile of shredded carrots in the center of
each salad.
