top secret recipes version of 
by todd wilbur 
menu description: "crisp oriental greens topped with chunks of 
crunchy chicken fingers, toasted almonds & crispy rice 
noodles tossed in a light oriental vinaigrette." 
applebee's 60-item menu is revised twice a year. that means about 40 
percent of the entire menu changes on a regular basis. the other 60 
percent are items that are found on menus in all of the applebee's 
restaurants, and seldom ever change. one item that has been on the menu 
for some time now is this oriental chicken salad, which is considered one 
of the restaurant's signature items. the recipe makes one dinner-size 
salad and can be easily doubled or quadrupled for additional servings. 
this recipe comes from the third book, "top secret restaurant recipes," 
but the dressing has been improved to more closely match the current 
dressing served at the restaurant. 
  oriental dressing
3 Tbsp  honey
1-1/2 Tbsp  rice wine vinegar
1/4 cup  mayonnaise
1 tsp  grey poupon dijon mustard
1/8 tsp  sesame oil
1   egg
1/2 cup  milk
1/2 cup  flour
1/2 cup  corn flake crumbs
1 tsp  salt
1/4 tsp  pepper
1   boneless, skinless chicken breast half
2 - 4 cup  vegetable oil (for frying)
3 cup  chopped romaine lettuce
1 cup  red cabbage
1 cup  napa cabbage
1/2   carrot, julienned or shredded
1   green onion, chopped
1 Tbsp  sliced almonds
1/3 cup  chow mein noodles
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. 
makes 1 dinner-size salad.
