Asian Sesame Chicken Wonton Pasta Salad
Serves: Serves 12.
  • 1 lb. Rotini Pasta, cooked and cooled
  • 3 Chicken Breasts, cooked, cooled, and shredded
  • 1 15 oz. can Mandarin Oranges, drained
  • 5 Green Onions, sliced
  • 2 Romaine Hearts, sliced into shreds
  • ½ C. Sliced Almonds(toasted, if you prefer)
  • Toasted Sesame Ginger Dressing
  • ½ package Wonton Wrappers
  • Canola or vegetable oil, for frying
  1. In a large mixing bowl, add the cooled pasta, chicken, mandarin oranges, almonds, and shredded romaine lettuce. Toss together.
  2. Pour half of the dressing over the salad and toss until thoroughly coated. Taste and add more dressing as desired. Cover and refrigerate salad.
  3. Heat a frying pan filled with about an inch of oil on medium heat.
  4. Slice the wonton wrappers into strips(you should get about 4 strips per wrapper).
  5. Fry the wonton strips on both sides. They are ready to flip when one side has bubbled up and turned a very light golden brown. Place cooked wonton strips on a few paper towels to collect excess oil.
  6. Store the fried wontons in an airtight container.
  7. When you are ready to serve the salad, break the wonton strips up a little bit and toss through the salad. Only add the strips JUST before you serve as they will become soggy after sitting in the pasta for awhile.
