I've made this several times as an appetizer when I had people over for dinner. It's always a success and healthy, too! Too bad we hardly ever have leftovers. Shortcut: use pre-cooked chicken (I like Hormel's).
Chinese Chicken & Noodle Salad
This delicious Chinese-inspired salad is crisp, crunchy and cool with shredded cabbage, carrots and chicken breast tossed with toasted ramen noodles and slivered almonds. The dressing is an addictive orange, sesame, ginger and soy combination—you may want to double the dressing and save some for a salad the next day.

So good! I used sesame oil instead of canola oil for the crunchies. Only 5 minutes in the oven b/c it was already hot from my go to "cooked chicken" recipe (poached chicken = ick). Put about a tablespoon minced garlic/ginger combo in the dressing.
If you're trying to cut down on sugar, you may want to use sweet kechap, a sweet Indonesian soy sauce that's an almost syrup-like consistency. It's available at Wegman's Supermarkt and at many Asian markets, as well as online. Look for Kechap or Kecap Manis.
Five stars for the dressing!
