1 package zesty herb marinade
1 teaspoon grated orange rind
1/4 cup orange juice
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 pounds skinned and boned chicken breasts or thighs
3 tablespoons rice vinegar
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon Asian (toasted) sesame oil
2 tablespoons black or white sesame seeds; toasted lightly
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/3 cup water
coriander leaves for garnish

Original recipe makes 3 Servings



Step 1. Cook the Chicken.

Stir together first 4 ingredients and 1/4 cup water in a shallow dish or large zip-top plastic freezer bag. Add chicken, turning to coat. Cover or seal, and chill 15 minutes, turning occasionally. Remove chicken from marinade, discarding marinade.

Grill chicken, covered with lid, over medium-high heat (350° to 400°) 6 to 8 minutes on each side or until done.

Step 2. Get the salad together.

In a large bowl add the romaine lettuce, fresh cilantro, sliced almonds, sesame seeds, crispy wonton strips. Mix together until it it mixed well and spread evenly. Hand-toss it to spread it well.

Step 3. Make the vinaigrette.

In a small bowl whisk together ingredients.

Step 4. Finish the Salad.

In the large salad bowl with the lettuce in it, add as much chicken as you want. It will be easier to eat if you cut it into strips or bite-size pieces. Next, add the sauce. Add enough so that it is well tasted, it is the main taste of the salad. Don't drench the salad though. After you mix the sauce is so that it coated everything, the salad is FINISHED!

Fast and easy to make, but the dressing seemed a bit watered down.
