Description

You already know our deep love for frozen chicken nuggets on a salad. This sweet and sour riff combines our favorite take-out inspired chicken with a crispy crunchy salad.


Ingredients

Scale

For the sweet and sour nuggets
⅓ cup apricot preserves
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
1 tablespoon soy sauce or tamari
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon hot sauce, optional
1 (24 ounce) bag frozen chicken nuggets

For the sesame vinaigrette
1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tablespoon sesame oil
2 teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
1 teaspoon soy sauce or tamari

For the salad
4 cups chopped romaine lettuce
1 cup shredded red cabbage
1/3 cup grated carrots
1/4 cup shelled edamame
1 green onion, thinly sliced
1/4 cup chow mein noodles, for serving
1/4 cup sliced almonds, for serving


Instructions

  1. Cook the nuggets according to the package. While the nuggets cook, whisk together the apricot preserves, rice wine vinegar, soy sauce, garlic powder, ground ginger, and hot sauce in a small bowl.
  2. Make the vinaigrette by combining the ingredients in a medium lidded jar. Shake to combine.
  3. When the nuggets are hot from the oven, drizzle on the sweet and sour sauce and toss to coat.
