Sweet Asian Chicken Salad

2-3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts 
1 red bell pepper, diced
1/2 head purple cabbage, sliced
1 head romaine, chopped (or mixed salad greens)
1/2 package crispy wontons, fried in canola oil (optional)
1/4 cup sesame seeds
1/2 red onion, sliced thin
Goat cheese or feta cheese (optional)
1 can mandarin oranges, drained (optional)

Dressing:
1/2 cup sweet red chili jelly (homemade or store bought)
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1/2 tsp. salt
2 Tbls. soy sauce
1-2 Tbls. sugar (if needed)

Grill the chicken breasts (or saute) until golden brown and cooked through. Season chicken with salt and pepper to taste. Cut cooked chicken into cubes and set aside. Remove the wonton skins from the wrapper and cut into 1/2 inch thin strips. Heat a saute pan with a thin layer of canola oil. When the oil is hot, place a few wonton skins into the hot oil and fry until golden brown. Turn the wonton's over with tongs and cook on the other side for a few seconds. Remove the wonton skins from the pan and let dry on a paper towel until ready to serve on the salad. Prepare the vegetables by cutting the lettuce, cabbage, peppers and onion. Place all of these ingredients into a salad bowl. Top with the cooked chicken (and cheese-optional), sesame seeds and cooked wontons. For the dressing, place all of the items into a mixing bowl (or blender) and whisk/blend together until smooth. Serve dressing over the salad when ready to serve.

Looks yummy! I've never heard of sweet red chili jelly. Would I look for this on the salad dressing aisle? Is there a substitution if I can't find it here in Louisiana?

Great question, sorry I wasn't more clear on what that is. Basically it's a jelly that is made with sugar, vinegar and red peppers. It is SO yummy! You can make it from scratch and keep in your freezer and the recipe is here on our blog:

Or, you can buy it at Costco, online or it's in almost all grocery stores by the Asian products (by the sesame oil and stuff). Hope that helps ;) THanks!
