Mom's Speciality: Chinese Chicken Salad

My mom has been making her famous Chinese Chicken Salad all of my life. Lucky for me. It is so delicious, I could eat bowls and bowls of it. Here is the recipe, for a huge family size serving like this one here!


2 grilled chicken breasts (or however much you want to put in, buy pre-grilled or grill yourself)
- 1/4 cup of cilantro
- I can of mandarin oranges
- 1/4 cup of green onions
- 4 cups of romain lettuce
- 4 cups of cabbage
- 1/2 cup of chopped up peanuts
- 1/2 cup of chowmain noodles for topping
- oriental dressing, enough to coat (buy fat-free or lowfat)

How to:

1) wash lettuce & cabbage and then chop up; put in a bowl and into the fridge for a few minutes to chill
2) cook chicken or use pre-grilled; dice up cooked chicken or cut into slices
3) dice up green onion and cilantro
4) take chilled lettuce & cabbage out of the fridge and assemble all the ingredients
5) top with mandarine oranges, chowmain noodles, and peanuts
6) add dressing
