Chicken Wonton Salad

Chicken Wonton Salad 
1 head of Romaine lettuce, chopped
1/2 package of Wontons
1 head of iceberg, chopped
Grilled boneless chicken breasts, cubed
Green onion, chopped
celery, chopped
2 cans of mandarin oranges
1/4 c. Rice Vinegar
1/4 c. Sesame Oil
1/2 Canola Oil
1/2 c. sugar
2 T. soy sauce
1 tsp. pepper
1/2 tsp. ginger
Mason Jar with lid
Make the dressing first. Add the dressing ingredients in a mason jar and shake well.  Put the dressing in the refrigerator to chill while preparing the rest of the salad.  Cut the wontons into thin strips.  In a large pot, add some cooking oil and heat it on medium. Make sure the oil is hot and ready to go.  You could test it by dropping in one wonton to see how it cooks.  I recommend the wontons a light golden brown color not fried crispy dark brown or black!  Allow the wontons to drain and cool off on a paper towel.  Next, grill the chicken on medium heat with some olive oil and cube it into bit size pieces (you may season the chicken how you like it I did salt and pepper).  Chop the lettuce then add chopped green onion and celery, set aside. In two separate small frying pans, toast the silvered almonds and sesame seeds with a little butter.  When they are brown remove from heat and add them the salad.   Next, add the dressing and mix well. Lastly, fold the  mandarin oranges gently in the salad!  Enjoy the GOODNESS!!!
