I saw this recipe on a local TV show called "Bay Cafe". It is very good and perfect for a light meal. Use more or less sesame oil to suit your taste! Be sure not to overdress the salad!

I looked through so many chinese chicken salad recipes before finding this one. It seemed to have the right ingredients. It is a really good recipe. I am very happy I chose this recipe. I do a lot of Chinese cooking and this was better than any restaurant. I did use fried wontons instead of noodles because that is what I had on hand. Thank you for this recipe.
