It all started when I spotted this in the salad dressing section…
I have always loved this brand of salad dressings so I knew it would be delicious! I always have fresh Romaine Hearts in the fridge for salads, and I already had chicken breast as well. All I needed were a few other “essentials” for what I think is the perfect Chinese Chicken Salad!
Carrots, fresh cilantro, green onions, and peanuts.
Shredded Red Cabbage.
And of course crispy Wonton Strips!
The only thing I forgot (that I am looking forward to using the next time I make this salad) was a can of mandarin oranges!
I decided to marinate and grill my chicken breasts. You can also slow cook and shred the chicken if you like. Here are my marinade ingredients!
Olive oil, Tamari, Honey, & Garlic Powder. Super simple and delicious!!
After the chicken was grilled, I sliced them into thin strips and topped a nice bed of Romaine Hearts with the chicken and all of my other yummy toppings, finishing with a drizzle of that scrumptious dressing that started this whole meal! It was so mouthwatering that I legit forgot to take a pic of the finished product! 😜 Lol! Next time I make one (which will be sooner than later!) I will add a pic of my plate!
