Good morning, everyone! It's been a while since I have participated in Sunday Supper. I've been very excited for this theme though: Restaurant Copycats! This recipe makes 75 copycat recipes posted on my blog. I was not expecting to enjoy this copycat recipe as much as others because, in truth, I've never had the recipe from the restaurant (nor do I know if they still have it on their menu). Plus, I don't like honey..and I was incredibly skeptical of the dressing.
I made this recipe while pregnant and having my chicken aversion...and then proceeded to make it an additional 2 times before Mason was born. This is completely unheard of for me to make a recipe that many times within a short amount of time unless I really really really like the recipe. Plus the fact that I really didn't want anything to do with chicken while I was pregnant. If that isn't enough to convince y'all that you must try this recipe, I don't know what is!
In addition to the lovely honey dressing, this salad has crunchy, crispy, fried chicken (not the most healthy, but hey...it's alright to indulge a little when the rest of the recipe is veggies, yes?), tons of cabbage, cucumbers, and almonds. It has a perfect mixture of savory and sweet.
What you need:
For the honey oriental dressing:
- 6 Tbsp. honey
- 3 Tbsp. rice wine vinegar
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 2 tsp. dijon mustard
- 1/4 tsp. olive oil
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup milk
- Rice Krispies, crushed [use a 1:1 ration of flour and cereal]
- Salt and Pepper
- Chicken tenderloins
- Vegetable oil, for frying
- 6 cups romaine lettuce, chopped
- 1/2 small head red cabbage, chopped
- 1 small head napa cabbage, chopped
- 1-2 carrots, shredded or diced
- 1-2 green onions, chopped
- 1 cucumber, sliced
- Sliced almonds
- Place all dressing ingredients into a mason jar and shake to combine. Place in refrigerator to chill.
- Heat vegetable oil to 350*. Meanwhile, prepare a bowl with beaten eggs and milk, then another bowl with flour, Rice Krispie crumbs, and salt and pepper.
- Dip tenderloins into eggs, then flour and cereal mixture. Fry in oil until golden brown. Once all chicken is done, slice into strips.
- Toss together lettuce, cabbages, carrots, and green onions.
- Top each serving with cucumber slices, almonds, chicken - and then drizzle with honey oriental dressing!
