Chicken Wonton Salad


This is my favorite salad in the whole world.  It is always my first choice to serve at a bridal or baby shower, and everyone LOVES it.  I got the recipe a long time ago from my sister, and it is definitely one of my favorite recipes ever.  You will not be disappointed!

Chicken Wonton Salad
print this recipe

1/2 pkg wontons, lightly fried and broken up
1 head red leaf lettuce
1 head iceberg lettuce
4 chicken breasts, grilled and cut into chunks
1 can sliced water chestnuts
3 green onions
1/3 cup sesame seeds
1 can mandarin oranges


1/4 cup salad oil
1/4 cup rice vinegar
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp. Accent
1/2 tsp. salt

(notes:  I fry the wontons in canola oil and usually end up using a little less than half of the package for the salad.  For the chicken, I usually just add salt and pepper and grill them.  The last time I made it though, I marinated the chicken for a few hours in 1 cup sprite and 1/2 cup soy sauce before I grilled it.  It was so moist and yummy-I will always do it that way now!  For the dressing, I double it and add just before serving.  I don't usually use all of it, but I always need more than the recipe calls for!)
