Directions

  1. Slice each chicken breast horizontally into two or three pieces; combine ¼ cup soy sauce, hoisin sauce, and olive oil to make a marinade; marinate the chicken for 30 minutes in the refrigerator.
  2. Discard marinade; grill chicken breast pieces until cooked through; cool for 15 minutes then thinly slice chicken on the diagonal.
  3. Meanwhile, shake together remaining ½ cup soy sauce, rice vinegar, sugar, diluted sesame paste, sesame oil, and minced ginger to make a salad dressing; combine cabbages, carrots, bean sprouts, and water chestnuts; toss well with part of the salad dressing.
  4. On each serving plate, arrange sliced chicken over a bed of the dressed salad; garnish with chopped cilantro, green onions, fried wonton strips, and another drizzling of salad dressing.
