Ready In:
1 salad




  • Preheat oil in deep fryer or deep pan over medium heat. You want the temperature of the oil to be around 350 degrees.
  • Blend together all ingredients for dressing in a small bowl with an electric mixer. Put dressing in refrigerator to chill while you prepare the salad.
  • In a small, shallow bowl beat egg, add milk, and mix well.
  • In another bowl, combine flour with corn flake crumbs, salt and pepper.
  • Cut chicken breast into 4 or 5 long strips. Dip each strip of chicken first into egg mixture then into the flour mixture, coating each piece completely.
  • Fry each chicken finger for 5 minutes or until coating has darkened to brown.
  • Prepare salad by tossing the chopped romaine with the chopped red cabbage, Napa cabbage, and carrots.
  • Sprinkle sliced green onion on top of the lettuce.
  • Sprinkle almonds over the salad, then the chow mein noodles.
  • Cut the chicken into small bite-size chunks. Place the chicken onto the salad forming a pile in the middle. Serve with salad dressing on the side.

  1. Great salad. Didn't have cornflakes so used panko but otherwise GREAT! Especially loved the dressing.


Even though I am still young (25) Life experince has aged me alot. I learned to cook at both of my grandmother's knees (One southern American, one southern Irish) when I was about five. By ten I started collecting cookbooks and experinmenting on my own. As a latch key kid I cooked for my four younger brothers and sisters. My mom ran a small deli before she died when I was 17 so alot of my recies debuted there. Now I run my own catering Buisness. I am married to a wnderful man for five years now. I am a six year old daughter, sons who are four and three. We are also raising my 14 year old sister and nine Year old stepsister and have a 16 year old foster daughter, all of which love cooking with me. I am writing a cookbook with the hopes that when I pass I can leave my recipes for them My cookbook collection has now reached over 1200. Thank you for trying and reviewing my recipes.. <img src="">
