Won Ton Chicken Salad

This is a great meal that is not too labor intensive and very good. It is also very easy to scale up or down for your family. I am going to write it up as I made it the other day for our family.

4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
1 package of Won Tons
1 bag of salad mix (a head of lettuce is fine also)
1/2 cup Japanese rice vinegar
1/2 cup oil (olive, vegetable, whatever)
1/2 cup sugar

Marinate the chicken breasts in teriaki sauce for a couple of hours then grill. I find that you will get more of a teriaki taste if you grill them in a grilling pan and then right before they are done, add fresh teriaki sauce onto the chicken. The hot pan will form a glaze on the chicken. Once the chicken is done, cube the breasts into fairly small pieces.

While the chicken is cooking, fry the won tons, turning once. I use a frying pan with about 1/2 of oil in the bottom. When the oil gets hot, add the won tons. Keep an eye on them since they cook very quickly and will burn. Drain them well to get rid of any excess oil.

Add the sugar, rice vinegar, and oil into a small container and mix well.

Finally, break the won tons into bite size pieces in a bowl, add some salad, some cubed chicken, and drizzle the dressing over the top. My mouth is watering in anticipation. Enjoy.

This is one I'm definitely going to try! I love salads of all kinds and am always looking for some really good recipes.

The best way to do dressings from scratch is using the product from Pampered Chef called the Measure Mix and Pour. It is awesome. I think a few of you have this.
