Chinese Chicken Salad



I'm really enjoying Asian inspired dishes lately...they're usually gluten and cheese-free which is a win-win during the summer months {when I'm often indulging in other things!}.  This salad came together pretty easily...we didn't follow an exact recipe.  I imagine you can mix it up as you like...next time we'll add edamame or sweet potato!

Ingredients:

Chicken Breast Strips
Romaine Lettuce
Won Ton Strips
Sesame Seeds
Soy Sauce
Sesame Oil
Garlic Powder
Asian Dressing of Choice

Method

Again, we kind of winged this, so it's guesstimates, but we marinated the chicken in about a quarter cup soy sauce, quarter cup sesame oil, and teaspoon garlic powder.  We grilled the chicken and set aside.  Toast the sesame seeds to bring out the flavor.  Combine lettuce, won ton strips, chicken and sesame seeds and drizzle with dressing.

Easy enough!

Do you have a favorite Asian recipe?
