    • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breast 2 portions
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
    • 1/2 cup sliced almonds
    • 8 cups romaine lettuce
    • 1/4 cup shredded carrots
    • 1/2 cup crispy rice noodles
    • 4 tablespoons Applebees Oriental Salad Dressing


    • Heat the grill to medium, or heat a cast-iron skillet or grill pan over medium heat.
    • Place the chicken breasts between two sheets of plastic wrap and gently pound them to 3/8-inch thick.
  • Brush chicken breasts with olive oil and season them with salt and pepper.
  • Grill chicken breasts for 5 to 7 minutes on each side, until cooked through. Transfer to a plate to rest for 4 to 5 minutes before slicing.
  • Toast the almonds in a small dry skillet over medium heat. Watch them carefully—there is a fine line between toasted almonds and burnt almonds! Shake the pan gently. When you begin to smell the almonds, toast for a few seconds more, then immediately place the almonds on a paper towel. Allow them to cool for a moment or two.
  • Assemble salads by first putting the lettuce in bowls or on plates, 3 to 4 cups per serving.
  • Sprinkle each with 2 tablespoons of carrots, 1/4 cup crispy rice noodles, and 1/4 cup toasted almonds.
  • Arrange the chicken on top.
  • Serve with Applebee’s Oriental Salad Dressing.


Customize your salad with any of these variations:

  • Add mandarin orange slices
  • Add sliced red onions
  • Add thinly sliced green onion or scallions
  • Add more sliced almonds
  • Swap the nuts for soy nuts, cashews, walnuts, or pecans
  • Swap the chicken for shrimp
  • Use mesclun or mixed green salad mix instead of romaine
