Chicken Won Ton Salad

I grew up on this salad. It is probably my favorite salad and is a great one to make for showers or any girls light lunch type of gathering. But be sure to make more than enough. Once you start eating it, you can't stop. It's delicious.


1 package won tons
1 head shredded lettuce
6 cooked chicken breasts, cut in strips
1 can water chestnuts
4 green onions - chopped
1/2 c. sesame seeds


Cut won tons into 1/4 inch strips. (recipe calls for 1/2 package, I always do full package). Cook them in 1/2 inch oil and drain on towel.
Mix everything together but won tons.
I have never put the green onions in and I usually just used bagged lettuce.


1/4 c. sugar
2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. accent
1/4 c. salad oil
1/4 c. rice vinegar

Add wontons and dressing to salad and serve immediately.
