Applebee’s Grilled Chicken Oriental Salad

Contributed By: Copy Cat Recipe


1 pound skinless chicken breast 2 portions
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 cup sliced almonds
8 cups romaine lettuce
1/4 cup shredded carrots
1/2 cup crispy rice noodles
4 tablespoons Applebees Oriental Salad Dressing


Heat the grill to medium, or heat a cast-iron skillet or grill pan over medium heat. Place the chicken breasts between two sheets of plastic wrap and gently pound them to 3/8-inch thick. Brush with the olive oil and season them with salt and pepper.
Grill for 5 to 7 minutes on each side, until cooked through. Transfer to a plate to rest for 4 to 5 minute before slicing.
Toast the almonds in a small dry skillet over medium heat. Watch them carefully—there is a fine line between toasted almonds and burnt almonds! Shake the pan gently. When you begin to smell the almonds, toast for a few seconds more, then immediately place the almonds on a paper towel. Allow them to cool for a moment or two.
Assemble salads by first putting down the lettuce, 3 to 4 cups per serving. Sprinkle each with 2 tablespoons of the carrots, 1/4 cup crispy rice noodles, and 1/4 cup toasted almonds. Arrange the chicken on top. Serve with plenty of the Applebee’s Oriental Salad Dressing.

Helpful Hints:

Variations Now, Applebee’s Grilled Chicken Oriental Salad is a delicious salad, but there are a few variations that I like to make. I like to change out the lettuce and use a mesclun mix. I also like to add a few mandarin orange sections and sprinkle some thinly sliced green onion or scallion on top, for my personal version of the Applebee’s Grilled Chicken Oriental Salad.
