Wendy's Mandarin Chicken Salad

2 tablespoons light mayonnaise
1 1/2 tablespoons rice vinegar
2 teaspoons brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons sesame oil
1 1/2 teaspoons soy sauce
pinch of garlic powder

Additional Ingredients:
2 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
5 cups romaine lettuce
2 cups mixed greens
1/2 (5-ounce) bag shredded carrots
1 tablespoons toasted, salted sesame seeds
1 cups canned mandarin oranges, packed in juice and drained
1/2 cup shredded red cabbage
1/2 cup crispy (chow mein) noodles (optional)
1/2 cup roasted sliced almonds (optional)

Add the dressing ingredients in a mixing bowl and blend with a mixer until combined. Chill before serving.

As the dressing chills, add chicken breasts to a pot of boiling water. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer for 25 minutes or until cooked.

Once the chicken is tender and no longer pink, remove from the pot and cut into bite sized pieces.

Combine chicken and other remaining salad ingredients in a bowl. Toss the salad with the dressing and serve.

Serves 2.
