Chinese Chicken Salad
4 wonton wrappers, sliced into 1/2-inch strips
1/2 pound chicken tenders
1 head Chinese cabbage, chopped and rinsed
2 medium carrots, peeled and sliced
1/2 pound snow peas, blanched and sliced
for the dressing:
1 clove minced garlic
1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
1/2 teaspoon chili paste
1 teaspoon black sesame seeds
1 teaspoon sesame oil
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
salt and pepper to taste
1 green onion, thinly sliced
Preheat the oven to 400 F.
Season the chicken with salt and pepper and brown over high heat with a bit of vegetable oil until golden brown on both sides. Set aside. Transfer all dressing ingredients into a jar with a lid and shake well. Coat a nonstick baking sheet with cooking spray and scatter wonton strips randomly around the sheet. They'll be crisper if they twist and turn rather than lie flat. Coat strips with cooking spray and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake 7-8 minutes at 400 F or until lightly browned. Layer salad ingredients in a large bowl, drizzle with dressing and top with wonton strips. Serve immediately.
