Crispy Chicken Salad With Honey Mustard Dressing
I used to go to Applebee’s just to get one of their salads. Once I got there it was always a matter of me making the decision to order the Oriental Chicken Salad or the Crispy Pecan Chicken Salad. Did I want those rice noodles and almonds with the Oriental vinaigrette or did I want the wonderful bits of cranberries, pecans, blue cheese crumbles, and that sweet and tangy honey mustard dressing? It was always a hard decision until one day I said, why not have both! I decided I would make no more decisions. If I want both…I shall have both. So I made the salad and put in what I wanted…both. Making this salad is so easy, thanks for frozen breaded chicken strips and pre-cut bagged lettuce.
Crispy Chicken Salad
Honey Mustard Sesame Dressing
1/3 cup honey
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
4 pieces Tyson’s Crispy Chicken Strips
4 cups mixed greens
1/4 cup sliced almonds
In a small bowl, whisk together the honey, mayo, mustard, vinegar, and sesame oil. Refrigerate while you prepare the salad.
Bake the chicken strips according to the package directions (about 20 minutes.) Remove cut up into bite sized pieces.
I like to air fry my chicken for that extra crunch.
Divide lettuce among individual bowls or plates, top with the chicken pieces, almonds, and cranberries.
Top with blue cheese crumbles and then drizzle the dressing on top.
Serve right away and enjoy!
I love Tyson’s Crispy Chicken Strips for the flavors and the crunch.
Mixed greens – Any mixed greens you prefer. I like a mix of romaine and iceberg.
Sliced almonds – Provides a nice nutty flavor.
Pecan pieces…. Just love pecans!
Dressing – I make the honey sesame dressing from scratch. It’s a simple but amazing mixture of honey, mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, rice wine vinegar, and sesame oil.
