Wendy's Mandarin Chicken Salad

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by senseicheryl

I received an email today with this copycat recipe listed. It appears to be different from the other one that is already posted on Zaar. "Everyone's favorite salad. Fresh greens, tender chicken, succulent oranges, and tasty toppings. It's the salad that'll satisfy any craving."

You REALLY have to add about 1 tsp of ginger powder to make it taste like the original, IMHO. I used some leftover grilled lime chicken I had. I just used iceburg lettuce although it would be better to add some field greens. Added some cilantro for flavor/garnish. Otherwise followed the recipe and it was great!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Add the dressing ingredients in a mixing bowl and blend with a mixer until combined. Chill before serving.
  2. As the dressing chills, add chicken breasts to a pot of boiling water. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer for 25 minutes or until cooked.
  3. Once the chicken is tender and no longer pink, remove from the pot and cut into bite sized pieces.
  4. Combine chicken and other remaining salad ingredients in a bowl.
  5. Toss the salad with the dressing and serve.
