Chinese Chicken Salad


Chicken is a popular meat in many Chinese dishes. The Chinese commonly flavor the bland taste of chicken with different seasonings and spices to create an exciting dish. This salad is easy to put together for an everyday supper and festive enough for Shabbos too.  


Assemble the Salad

1. Arrange veggies on a plate; add broiled schnitzel pieces.
2. Pour over dressing right before serving. Garnish with chow mein noodles and peanuts.
3. Combine dressing ingredients and set aside.



•  1 teaspoon dry mustard equals 1 tablespoon prepared mustard, so you can sub 1/2 tablespoon prepared mustard.


• The schnitzel can be marinated before, but this is optional. A marinade adds flavor, softens the chicken (or meat), and thereby shortens the grilling/cooking time. You can use one of your choice, or make your own by combining soy sauce, honey, crushed garlic, lemon juice, lemon zest, and water. For real gourmet taste (this is a little sweeter), use creme de casis, lemon juice, brown sugar, pickled cherries, salt, pepper, and sesame oil. Fresh chopped herbs, white wine, and garlic is delicious as well. Use your imagination and don’t be afraid to experiment.
