Chinese Chicken Salad

Recipe by SandraMyers


Prep time




  • 2 cups rotisserie chicken breast, shredded

  • 1 rounded cup of red cabbage, shredded

  • 1 cup of carrots (about 2 carrots), julienned or shredded

  • 1/2 bunch of green onions, thinly sliced

  • 1 head romaine lettuce, shredded

  • 1 head iceburg lettuce, shredded

  • 2–3 tablespoons cilantro leaves, roughly chopped

  • Asian salad dressing

  • Garnishes: sesame seeds, crushed red pepper flakes (optional), sliced or slivered almonds, cashew halves, crispy wonton strips


  • Start by preparing the homemade Asian salad dressing so the flavors have a chance to meld together nicely.
  • After shredding the chicken breast, add it to a large mixing bowl. Drizzle half of the salad dressing directly on top of the chicken. With kitchen tongs, mix these ingredients together. Let the chicken sit and soak in all of that goodness while you finish prepping the remainder of the recipe.
  • Add the shredded romaine lettuce, iceburg lettuce, carrots and red cabbage to the mixing bowl. Add in the sliced green onions and chopped cilantro leaves. With tongs, toss the ingredients until well combined.
  • Generously garnish your Chinese chicken salad with sesame seeds, dried chili flakes, almonds, cashew halves and wonton strips. To keep your salad nice and crisp, do not add the remainder of the Asian dressing until serving time.
  • Place the salad dressing carafe with the remainder of the Asian dressing beside the serving bowl. As they serve themselves, family and guests can drizzle the dressing on top. Enjoy!
