Won-Ton Chicken Salad

I'm not exactly sure where Sarah go this recipe, but I absolutely love it. This is one of my favorite salads, and it's not that hard to make. Now this recipe makes quite a large salad, so you better share it because it does not keep very well. Also, if you like more chicken, just serve everyone else first. You should then have plenty of chicken, as most of the chicken tends to hide at the bottom of the bowl.


2 heads of lettuce
6 grilled boneless/skinless chicken breasts
6 small green onions
3/4 cup sliced almonds
1 can Mandarin oranges
6 oz won-ton wrappers


1/2 cup vinegar
1/8 cup sugar
1 cup canola oil
3 tsp salt
3 tsp pepper


1. Fry won-ton wrappers in oil so they are golden brown when done ( Remove from oil before turning brown and they will brown up without being over cooked)
2. Grill chicken breasts brushed with olive oil. Cut cooked chicken breasts into bit size chunks and set aside.
3. For dressing, heat vinegar and sugar until dissolved. ( Don't boil ). Remove from heat and add canola oil, salt and pepper.
4. Mix all ingredients except dressing together in a large bowl.
5. Just before serving, add dressing to salad and toss.

I make something like this salad all the time, but have never seen won ton wrappers in it. What a great idea! I'll bet it's delicious.
