Chinese Chicken Salad

There are a lot of version to this "Chinese Chicken Salad" recipe.  I personally like this one.


3 tablespoons hoisin sauce
2 tablespoons peanut butter
2 teaspoons brown sugar
3/4 teaspoon hot chili paste
1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
3 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1-2 boneless chicken breast halves, breaded and pan-fried
1 cup dried vermicelli torn into pieces, deep fried
4 cups romaine lettuce
1 cup carrots, julienne
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 mandarin oranges, cut into segments
1. prepare the dressing,  combine all dressing ingredients in a bowl and mix.
2.  deep-fry dried vermicelli (sotanghon) or (bihon) in hot oil.  Make sure you are ready with a slotted spoon as they cook very fast.
3.  Cook the chicken, it can be breaded as suggested or it can also be grilled.  You can also use leftover roasted chicken if you want.
4.  Combine all salad ingredients and toss in the dressing.  Enjoy =)
