Oriental Chicken Salad with Todd and the Colonel

Applebee’s Oriental Chicken Salad? Yummmm! But instead of running to Applebee’s I learned long ago to use Todd Wilbur’s Top Secret Recipes knock-off recipe instead. AND now I’ve recruited the Colonel to help out as well. That is the KFC Colonel.

I know you can Google Applebee’s Oriental Chicken Salad and get the “original knock-off” recipe, so what I’m sharing with you is my version.. through years of practice.

My Oriental Chicken Salad

With Todd and the Colonel’s help…


I always triple this recipe because I make enough salad for two-three meals
3 Tbsp. honey
1 ½ Tbsp. rice wine vinegar
¼ c. mayonnaise
1 tsp. Grey Poupon Dijon mustard
1/8 tsp. sesame oil – small amount but it does make a difference


I triple this too!

3 c. chopped romaine lettuce
1 c. chopped red cabbage
1 c. chopped Napa cabbage
½ carrot, julienned or shredded
1 green onion, chopped
1 Tbsp. sliced almonds - or more
1/3 c. crispy chow mein noodles


½ Original Spice KFC Chicken breast
We remove the skin and crust, but you can leave it if you prefer.

Bon Appetit, Y'all!
