Ingredients:

  • 12  3-inch wonton skins, sliced into 1/4″ strips
  • 1/4 cup canola or corn oil for frying
  • 4 cups chopped romaine lettuce
  • 1 chicken breast, shredded
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds, toasted lightly
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
  • 2 cups cooked fusilli pasta noodles, cooled

dressing

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons vegetable or grapeseed oil
  • 6 tablespoons seasoned rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil (add more to taste if you prefer a strong sesame taste)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons light soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoon sesame seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

Method:

  1. Heat canola or corn oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. When oil starts to shimmer, fry wonton skins in batches of 5-7 strips for 30 seconds each side or until lightly browned, working quickly so they don’t burn. Remove from oil and drain on paper towels until cooled.
  2. In a large bowl, combine lettuce, chicken breast, green onion, almonds and pasta.
  3. Combine dressing ingredients in a small bowl. Whisk well until sugar dissolves. Dress lettuce mixture with 2-3 tablespoons of sesame dressing and top with sesame seeds and wonton strips and serve.
