Asian Chicken Salad is the perfect 20 minute meal on a busy night! get the recipe at

Inspired by Applebee’s Asian Chicken Salad, this is a tangy, sweet salad filled with a simple blend of fresh vegetables, crispy hot chicken, crunchy noodles, and almonds.

In case you missed it when I shared the dressing recipe yesterday, Applebee’s Asian Chicken Salad and I go way back. I am absolutely thrilled to tell you that this salad is so much more flavorful than its namesake, you may wonder why you ever paid for the restaurant’s version.

Asian Chicken Salad

5 from 1 vote
Recipe inspired by Very Culinary
Servings: 6 servings


  • 6-8 pieces frozen crispy chicken strips about 1.5 pounds
  • 6 cups shredded crunchy lettuce romaine works best
  • 3 cups finely shredded cabbage
  • 1 large English cucumber sliced lengthwise and then into very thin slices
  • 1 small red onion sliced as thin as possible
  • 1/2 cup crunchy chow mein noodles
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds
  • 1 recipe of Asian Salad Dressing


  • Cook the chicken according to the package directions. While the chicken cooks, combine the lettuce, cabbage, cucumber, onion, noodles, and almonds in a large mixing bowl. Toss to combine.
  • Remove the chicken from the oven and slice or chop into bite-size pieces. Divide the salad onto individual plates and top with the chicken. (Alternatively, feel free to add the chicken to the mixing bowl and toss to combine before serving family-style.) Drizzle with salad dressing just before serving. Enjoy!


The recipe, as written below, includes frozen crispy chicken strips. This makes it one of the easiest, and simplest, salads to get on the table in under 20 minutes. However, if you prefer to make your own crispy chicken, I recommend following this recipe for Homemade Chick-fil-A and simply skip the pickle juice marinade. The chicken turns out crisp and juicy every time.

    Unfortunately, I didn’t find a recipe for Asian salad dressing you mentioned. Looks like it must be essential for this salad as all the ingredients are regular. Thank you.
