1/2 c. vegetable oil
1 T. + 1 t. sesame oil
6 T. white vinegar
2 cloves minced fresh garlic
2 t. soy sauce
1 t. dry mustard powder
4 T. sugar
1 t. pepper

Salad ingredients:
2-3 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
1 head iceberg lettuce
4 green onions, chopped
Mai Fun sticks, about 2 oz.
1/4 c. sliced almonds

Mix salad dressing ingredients together in a container with a secure lid, set aside or refrigerate. Season chicken breast halves with salt, pepper and garlic powder, bake @350 for 20 to 25 minutes (I use a toaster oven). Let cool.

Mai Fun sticks need to be deep fried. Cut into small pieces and drop into hot oil, a handful at a time. (Be sure the oil is hot enough by testing a piece.) They will puff up within seconds. Remove with a slotted spoon onto a paper towel-lined plate or bowl.

When chicken is cool, slice thinly and place on bottom of large salad bowl. Tear lettuce into pieces and place on top of chicken slices. Add chopped green onions, then almonds and mai fun sticks. Shake salad dressing well before adding to the salad, about 15 minutes before serving. Toss the salad completely.
