Applebee's Oriental Chicken Salad

I LOVE Applebee's oriental chicken salad. The only thing I change is grilled chicken instead of the fried. If you aren't frying the chicken, this is a real quick and simple copy cat of their original.

1 c. honey
1/2 c. rice wine vinegar
1 1/4 c. mayo
1 3/4 Tbsp. Dijon mustard

Vegetable Oil (for frying)
2 eggs
1 c. milk
1 c. flour
1c. corn flakes
2 1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
6 boneless skinless chiken breasts
10-12 c. romaine lettuce
2 c. chopped red cabbage
2 c. chopeed napa cabbage
2 c. shredded carrots
4 green onions
4 Tbsp. slice almonds
1 can rice noodles (about 1 1/2 c.)

For dressing, combine honey, vinegar, mayo and mustard in a small bowl; blend thoroughly. Refrigerate.

Preheat oil in deep fryer or deep pan over medium heat to 30 . In a small bowl, beat together egg and milk. In another bowl combine flour with cornflake crumbs, salt and pepper. Dredge chicken in milk mixture then in crumbs. Fry until golden and cooked thoroughly. ( I always have them give me the grilled chicken on this salad so if you like it that way grill it and omit this step.)

Prepare the salad by tossing the romaine with cabbages and carrot. Sprinkle green onion, almonds and rice noodles on top of lettuce mixture. Cut chicken into bite size chunks and place on salad Serve with oriental dressing on the side.
