Vietnamese-style Chicken Salad

PREP TIME
15 minutes
COOK TIME
5 minutes
SERVES

Ingredients

2 cups shredded cooked chicken (left-over roast, rotisserie or BBQ chicken are good options) 

½ small carrot, finely julienned 

3 cups finely shredded cabbage 

¼ red onion, sliced 

¼ cup finely sliced spring onion (scallions) 

½ cup torn mint leaves 

long red chilli, finely sliced 

¼ cup roasted peanuts 

¼ cup fried shallots 

 

Dressing: 

¼ cup honey 

tbsp white vinegar 

2 tbsp fish sauce 

 

Crispy wonton noodles: 

12 wonton sheets 

vegetable oil for deep frying

Steps
  • Step 1

    For dressing, whisk all the ingredients together.  Set aside until ready to serve. 

  • Step 2

    To make the crispy wonton noodles, heat a small saucepan of oil over high heat. When the oil is hot, add the noodles and cook for a minute or until golden and crisp. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towel. The noodles will crisp up even more as they cool. 

  • Step 3

    Place the chicken, carrot cabbage, onion, spring onion, mint, and chilli in a large bowl. 

  • Step 4

    Use a mortar and pestle to roughly pound the roasted peanuts. Add these to the bowl with the chicken also. 

  • Step 5

    When ready to serve, add the fried shallots to the other salad ingredients and pour over the dressing. Mix until well combined. Pile onto a serving plate. Use your fingers to crush the crispy wonton noodles over the top. Serve immediately.
