Chinese Chicken Salad

Servings 2
Author Laura Doerr


  • 1 1/2 cups chopped chicken (about 2 breasts) cooked
  • 3 cup romaine lettuce chopped
  • 1/3 cup red cabbage chopped
  • 1/3 cup green or napa cabbage chopped
  • 1/3 cup carrots shredded
  • 1/2 red bell pepper chopped
  • 1/2 large peeled cucumber chopped
  • 3 tbsp almonds sliced or chopped
  • 2 scallions chopped
  • wonton strips
  • drizzle hoisin or teriyaki sauce

For the dressing

  • 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • 1 1/2 tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1/8 tsp sesame oil
  • salt and pepper


  1. Whisk the dressing ingredients together in a small bowl. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

  2. Add all salad ingredients to a large bowl (except wonton strips and hoisin/teriyaki). 

  3. Add the dressing over the salad ingredients and toss until coated. Transfer to serving bowls or platter. Drizzle with hoisin or teriyaki sauce (don't skip this ingredient), and top with crispy wonton strips. YUM!

Recipe Notes

Every single ingredient in this recipe adds great flavor and texture so don't leave anything out! I often toss the chicken in some hoisin or teriyaki sauce.

The wonton strips at my local store are found in the produce area with some other salad toppings. 

This made two large entree sized portions, but would feed more if serving at a potluck style meal. Easily could double the recipe to feed a crowd!
