I love, love, love to go out to dinner . . . however, our budget doesn’t always allow it. I love finding restaurant recipes that I can make for a fraction of a price and have them taste just as good! We found this recipe a couple of weeks ago and have made it a three times already! It’s super simple to throw together and the dressing is delicious. So, save your money and make this restaurant-quality meal for your family tonight!

Applebee’s Knock-off Oriental Chicken Salad
Recipe Source: Mommy? I’m Hungry

Oriental Dressing:
6 Tbsp. honey
3 Tbsp. Rice Vinegar
1/2 c. Mayonnaise
2 tsp. Dijon mustard
1/4 tsp. Sesame oil

Blend together all ingredients in a small bowl with a whisk or mixer. Refrigerate while you work on the salad.

2 pieces of Crispy Chicken Strips (frozen or from the deli) or leftover grilled chicken (that is what I used)
Bagged salad with assorted lettuces, cabbage, and vegetables
Bagged broccoli slaw
1 Tbsp. sliced almonds, toasted
1/4 c. fried won ton strips (optional- we opted to not use them)
1/4 cup mandarin slices, drained well

Bake the chicken strips according to the package directions (if you bought frozen ones) or reheat grilled chicken. Cut up the chicken into bite-sized pieces.
Mix together a large handful of the lettuce salad and the broccoli slaw. Top with cut up chicken, almonds, wontons and madarin slices. Drizzle the dressing on top. Serve immediately.

    I love this! Taking restaurant entrees and making them at home is so awesome and something I love to try and do every time I find something I like on a menu. Looks great!

    Our Applebee’s not serve it with oranges. Everytime I order it I say it needs the oranges. Ours serves it the La Choy Rice Noodles. We make our Asian Salad very similar, except no dressing compares to Applebee’s. Thank you for the recipe.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you! I love this salad at Applebee’s and have wanted the recipe forever.

    I thought the dressing was a little over powering except on the oranges, but I might have used too much. Otherwise a good, simple, recipe.
