You may want to make the dressing beforehand so that it’s well-chilled.

about 1/2 pound leaf lettuce of your choosing
2 fresh mandarin oranges, peeled and sectioned
3/4 cup chow mein noodles
1/3 cup slivered almonds
1. Marinate the chicken in the sauce for about an hour. Cook the chicken in the sauce. Place the cooked chicken in the refrigerator to cool.
2. Wash and pat dry the lettuce. Tear the lettuce into strips or cut up with shears. Place the lettuce in a large bowl.
3. Spread the mandarin sections, noodles, and almonds on the lettuce.
