OK! So this is one of the most amazing homemade salads i have ever made! This is a family recipe and I love that i am able to share it with friends! This is such a healthy and yummy dish! I kinda spaced it while i was making this and didn't take a picture until after we dished up our plates..... oops... but it will still work right?! Alright lets get down to what you all really want to know.... How to make Chinese Chicken Salad!
Chinese Chicken Salad
- 2 Chicken Breasts
- 1/2 pkg Maifun Rice Sticks (noodles)
- 3 cups Oil
- 1 head of Red Leaf Lettuce
- 1/2 cup Sliced Almonds
- 1/4 cup Sesame Seeds
- 6 tablespoons Sugar
- 2 teaspoons Salt
- 4 tablespoons White Vinegar
- 1/4 teaspoon Black Pepper
- Juice from 1 small Lemon
First you want to BOIL the chicken, once cooked SHRED and place in large bowl!
Next you want to put the oil into a wok or frying pan. HEAT! Place Maifun noodles in oil. WATCH OUT! The noodles EXPAND to double/triple the size. NOTE: you want to make sure the oil is VERY hot for the noodles. You want the oil to be at 400 degrees so before you put all the noodles in the oil place just ONE noodle in to see if it expands. The noodle should expand right away, if not wait a little longer and try again. Once the oil is at the right temp for the noodles, cook the noodles. Once the noodles expand/cook FLIP over to the other side so all the noodles get cooked. once all the noodles are cooked/expanded remove asap and place into bowl with chicken.
WASH and CUT Lettuce, place in bowl with noodles and chicken, Next toss in the Almonds.
TOSS, TOSS TOSS!!!
NOW you want to make the dressing. this is VERY simple. Throw everything into a small bowl and mix until sugar is basically dissolved. DONE! :) Now you want to mix in the dressing to the salad mixture. Once the dressing is all mixed in refrigerator for about 20 minutes! Serve and Enjoy!
