Applebee’s Grilled Chicken Oriental Salad has to be one of my most requested recipes. Honestly I can’t think of a recipe that has been more requested than the Applebee’s Grilled Chicken Oriental Salad. Applebee’s has been serving the Grilled Chicken Oriental Salad for years now, and this is a restaurant that is known for swapping out their menu on a fairly regular basis. What makes this salad so special? Crisp rice noodles, toasted almonds, fresh lettuce are served with an oriental dressing.

You can make your own Applebee's Grilled Chicken Oriental salad at home; it is so tasty, and so easy to do. Best of all if you can customize this salad and put in the ingredients that you enjoy the most.
- 6-8 cups romaine lettuce
- 2 chicken breasts
- 1/2 cup crispy rice noodles
- 1/2 cup sliced almonds
- 2 tablespoons shredded carrots
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- Salt and pepper
- Applebee's Oriental Salad Dressing
Grill chicken breasts, by first placing into plastic wrap, and gently pounding them to about 3/8 of an inch thick. If you have a grill you can use a grill to cook your chicken breasts. You can also cook the chicken breasts in a skillet, add olive oil to a skillet and heat on medium heat. Season chicken breasts with salt and pepper, and cook for approximately 5 to 7 minutes on each side. Place fully cooked chicken breasts onto a plate, and allow it to rest for 4 to 5 minutes before slicing.
Toast almonds by placing in a small skillet over medium heat, watch almonds carefully, there is a fine line between toasted almonds and burnt almonds. Shake pan gently and when you begin to smell the almonds they are toasting, allow them to toast for a few seconds more and immediately place almonds onto a paper towel and allow them to cool for a moment or two.
Assemble salads by first putting down the lettuce, I use about 3 to 4 cups of lettuce, add the shredded carrot, 1/4 cup crispy rice noodles, 1/4 cup toasted almonds, and then place on sliced chicken. Serve with plenty of the Applebee's Oriental Salad Dressing.
Now, Applebee's Grilled Chicken Oriental Salad is a delicious salad, but there are a few variations that I like to make, I like to change out the type of lettuce, and use a mesculan mix. I also like to add a few mandarin oranges, and some finely sliced green onion to go on top, of my personal version of the Applebee's Grilled Chicken Oriental Salad. What changes do you like to make when you make a salad? Do you like any unusual ingredients on your salads?
