Chinese Chicken Salad

This recipe was originally posted by chocolatechip1979 in the Nov 2011 What's for Dinner thread.

Chinese Chicken Salad

Ingredients
4 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce, divided
2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil, divided
1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breasts
1/2 head napa cabbage, thinly shredded (about 6 cups)
1/4 head red cabbage, shredded (about 2 cups)
1 large carrot, shredded (about 2 cups)
3 scallions, trimmed and thinly sliced, greens included (about 1/2 cup)
1 (8-ounce) can sliced water chestnuts
1 (11-ounce) can Mandarin oranges in water, drained
1/3 cup rice wine vinegar
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon minced ginger
2 tablespoons canola oil
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons chili-garlic sauce or chili sauce
1/4 cup sliced almonds, toasted
1/4 cup dried cranberries or currants
1/2 cup of edamame
Directions


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Combine 1 tablespoon soy sauce and 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil and brush onto chicken breasts. Arrange in a baking dish and bake until juices run clear, about 13 to15 minutes. Remove from oven, cool completely, and cut into 1/4-inch slices.
In a large bowl, combine Napa cabbage, red cabbage, carrot, scallions, water chestnuts, Mandarin orange and sliced chicken. In a separate bowl, whisk together 3 tablespoons soy sauce, vinegar, garlic, ginger, oil, 1 1/2 teaspoons sesame oil, brown sugar and chili sauce. Pour dressing over salad.
Enjoy with your loved ones.

Serve with berries of your choice (Strawberries,Black and Blue Berries ect)


HOMEMADE WHIPPED CREAM

1/2 pt. whipping cream
3 tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
Whip cream with mixer. Be careful not to overbeat or else will get too thick like butter. When it begins to thicken, add sugar and vanilla and lots of love.

Napa Cabbage

Napa cabbage

Other names: chinese cabbage, hakusai, nappa (misspelling)

A long ruffled edge cabbage used in Asian cooking. Napa (Chinese) cabbage is excellent for stir-fries and well as salads and noodle dishes.

Thanks.. odd but I've never seen that carried in our stores. We do have asian stores though and could probably find it there.

Sounds like a good recipe and pretty healthy too.

Our supermarkets carry it. I think it is usually near the cabbage. Not sure I am remembering correctly. Trying to picture the produce section.
