Crunchy Chinese Chicken Salad with Wonton Chips

Ingredients

Dressing:
1/4 cup canola oil
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
3 tablespoons dark sesame oil
2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
2 green onions, cut into 2-inch pieces
1 garlic clove, peeled

Chicken:
2 (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon grated peeled fresh ginger
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 cup finely chopped green onions (about 2 onions)
Cooking spray

Chips:
6 wonton wrappers
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
Remaining ingredients:
2 cups thinly sliced napa (Chinese) cabbage
1 cup thinly sliced red cabbage
2 cups thinly sliced romaine lettuce
1 cup matchstick-cut carrots
1/2 cup coarsely chopped whole natural almonds, toasted
1/3 cup thinly sliced green onions (about 3 onions)

Directions

To prepare dressing, place first 8 ingredients in a blender; process until smooth. Cover and chill up to 3 days.
Preheat oven to 350°.
To prepare chicken, sprinkle with salt and pepper; rub ginger, garlic, and 1/4 cup green onions over chicken. Place in an 11 x 7–inch baking dish coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 26 to 28 minutes or until chicken is done. Cool slightly, and cut crosswise into 1/4-inch slices.
Preheat broiler.
To prepare chips, stack wonton wrappers. Cut wrappers diagonally into quarters to form triangles; place in a single layer on a large baking sheet. Coat quarters with cooking spray, and sprinkle evenly with 1/4 teaspoon salt. Broil 30 seconds to 1 minute or until browned. (Watch closely to prevent burning.)
Place chicken, cabbages, and remaining ingredients in a large bowl. Drizzle with dressing; toss gently. Divide salad evenly among 6 plates. Serve with chips.
Tips: For quick and easy prep, place the cabbage and veggies in a bowl and make the dressing in the morning. Then, cook the chicken and chips right before dinner. If you’re in a pinch, you can use leftover shredded chicken from Simplest Roast Chicken Ever. If you’d like to make this salad completely gluten free, simply omit the wonton chips.

Chinese Chicken Salad

Ingredients

Marinade:
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup sesame oil
1/2 cup rice vinegar or 1/3 cup white vinegar
2 ramen noodle seasoning packets (reserved from ramen noodle packages used in salad)
1 tablespoon peeled and minced fresh ginger
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
2 cups cubed chicken breasts or thighs

Salad:
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 head Napa cabbage, cut into very thin slivers
4 green onions, thinly sliced
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1/4 cup chopped peanuts
2 tablespoons sesame seeds, toasted in a dry skillet over medium heat
Three 3-ounce packages oriental- or chicken-flavored ramen noodles, broken

Directions

In a 2-cup measuring cup, whisk together first 6 marinade ingredients. In a medium-size bowl, toss chicken with 1/4 cup marinade and marinate for 1 hour.
Heat sesame oil in a medium-size skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook, without stirring, until nicely browned on one side, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir and cook until chicken is no longer pink in the center, 5 to 8 more minutes. (If you’re short on time, cook chicken immediately after tossing it with marinade.)
Transfer cooked chicken to a large bowl, and add remaining salad ingredients; toss to combine. Pour remaining marinade over salad and toss until everything is well coated. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate several hours, or overnight, to let the flavors develop.

Japanese Mum’s Chicken


Ingredients:

  • 8 chicken drumsticks, skin on (the skin is important for flavour, and is so tasty to eat!)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled and bruised
  • 1 small hot chili pepper, slit open, seeds removed

Directions:

Place all the ingredients in a saucepan over a high heat.
Bring to the boil, then reduce to a simmer for about 20 minutes.
Remove any scum that rises to the surface.
Increase the heat, turning the drumsticks frequently in the liquid, and cook until the liquid has reduced to a sticky glaze.
Arrange the chicken on a serving platter, remove the garlic clove and chili from the liquid, and spoon the glaze over.
NOTE It’s a glaze rather than a sauce, so there’s not a whole lot of it.
