Applebee's Oriental Chicken Salad Copycat/Clone

Oriental Dressing:
3 T honey
1-1/2 T rice wine vinegar
1/4 c mayonnaise
1 t Grey Poupon Dijon mustard
1/8 t sesame oil

1 egg
1/2 c milk
1/2 c flour
1/2 c corn flake crumbs
salt to taste
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 boneless, skinless chicken breast half
2-4 cups vegetable oil (for frying)
3 cups chopped romaine lettuce
1 c red cabbage
1 c Napa cabbage
1/2 carrot, julienned or shredded
1 green onion, chopped
1 T sliced almonds
1/3 c 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.

For carol in IL. She can follow this link for the copycat recipe whom the lady says tastes EXACTLY like Applebee's if you will allow it--- Dee Dee

This is in regard to Betty in ME's question about the apple trees that appeared on their land. Birds probably dropped the seeds and the trees grew.

These apples sound like "Crab Apples" as they are known in our part of the country. You probably have seen these tiny whole apples in glass jars in the grocery store. They are usually pickled and/or flavored with a lot of cinnamon and often have red food coloring. The apples are edible and are pretty garnishes for food.

This is one of our favorite dishes and I love that it's so quick to prepare and SO good to eat! You can used a roasted chicken from the deli, but I like to boil a whole chicken, so can use the liquid in this dish, as has a much better flavor than the canned chicken broth.

Chicken Lo Mein Recipe

8 oz. thin spaghetti, broken in thirds
4 cups chicken broth, or half water & half broth
2 tbsp. soy sauce
1 tsp. ground ginger
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
2 cups frozen oriental vegetables
1-1/2 cups cooked shredded chicken
2 tsp. dark oriental sesame oil
2 tbsp. sliced scallions (I use little green onions)

Boil spaghetti in chicken broth, soy sauce, ginger and garlic powder, uncovered, for about 6 minutes, until pasta is limp, stirring occasionally. Stir in frozen veggies;
cover and simmer for about 8 minutes, stirring twice. Stir n chicken and sesame oil. Sprinkle with sliced scallions and serve. Serve with additional soy sauce, if desired.

RE: Cracker Barrel Old Country Store recipes
Cracker Barrel Old Country Store's Corn Muffins

4 tablespoons sugar
4 tablespoons butter
4 tablespoons liquid non-dairy creamer
4 tablespoons yellow cornmeal
3/4 cup self-rising flour

Add ingredients to bowl in order listed and beat well until it looks like a smooth cake batter. Divide batter between 8 greased cupcake wells and fill the other 4 with water.

Bake at 400 degrees for 16 to 18 minutes, or until tester inserted into centers comes out clean. Let cool a few minutes in pan, and remove with two forks so as not to disturb the water.

This recipe yields 8 muffins exactly like Cracker Barrel Restaurants.

Filling the 4 extra wells with water gives the muffins just the right texture.

(Note: My son sends 1 - 2 lb. Alaskan filets from Pike Place Market in Seattle that I cut into 2- 4 portions & freeze. If I don’t have them, I order the individual portions from Vital Choice. com. Frozen fillets cook in the same amount of time as fresh. The Atlantic salmon in supermarkets frequently contains red dye for color.)
