Kristen's Chicken Salad

Anthony got this recipe from a co-worker who's a chef at the Cannon Center. It's not pictured above, but the Sweet BBQ Sauce that you put on the salad absolutely makes this dish! It is delicious!
  • lettuce
  • carrots, chopped into small pieces
  • manderin oranges
  • chow mein noodles
  • chicken, cut into small strips
*Use as much as is needed for your family size.
Sweet BBQ Sauce**:
  • 2 tbsp apple sauce
  • 2 tbsp ketchup
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, NOT packed
  • 1 1/2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp pepper
  • 1/8 tsp garlic salt
  • 1/8 tsp paprika
  • 1/8 tsp cinnamon
**Sauce is enough to cover about 3 good-sized bowls of salad. May need to double for larger family.
Make the sauce first to allow for cooling time. To make the sauce, combine all ingredients in a microwave-safe container. Mix together and then microwave for about 1 minute 30 seconds, or until brown sugar is dissoved. Put the sauce in the refrigerator to cool - about 30 minutes.
Cook the chicken in a skillet using a small amount of oil. While cooking the chicken, you can choose to flavor it - Anthony used some salt, pepper, and a little garlic powder the last time he made this recipe.
Arrange lettuce, carrots, manderin oranges, chow mein noodles, and cooked chicken in a bowl or on a salad plate. Use the Sweet BBQ Sauce as the dressing for this salad, and then enjoy!
