Honey Oriental Dressing
- 6 Tablespoons honey
- 3 Tablespoons rice wine vinegar
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 2 teaspoons dijon mustard
- 1/4 teaspoon sesame oil
For the Salad
- 2 large eggs
- 1 cup milk
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 cup Corn Flakes cereal , crushed into crumbs
- salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts
- 3 cups oil (vegetable or canola), for frying
- 6 cups Romaine lettuces , chopped
- 1 cup red cabbage , chopped
- 1 cup napa cabbage , chopped
- 2 carrots , shredded
- 2 green onions , chopped
- 1/2 cucumber , chopped
- 2 Tablespoons slivered almonds
Blend together all ingredients for the dressing. Refrigerate until ready to use.
Preheat oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. You want the oil at about 350 degrees F, (or test the oil by putting a small piece of torn bread into the pot and if the bread sizzles, it's ready, if it just floats there, it's not.)
In a small bowl beat the egg and milk together. In another bowl combine the flour, cornflake crumbs and salt and pepper.
Cut chicken breast into several long thin strips. Dip the strips in the egg mixture, and then into the flour mixture, coating completely.
Add chicken strips to the hot oil and fry for 3-4 minutes or until cooked through and coating is dark golden brown.
Prepare the salad: Combine the romaine, red cabbage, napa cabbage, carrots, onions and cucumber.
Add chicken pieces on top and sprinkle with almonds. Serve with the honey oriental dressing!
