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
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.
