I made a couple of substitutions but enjoyed this recipe way more than I thought I would. I accidentally marinated the chicken in oyster sauce instead of hoisin but it was DELICIOUS! I also added some minced garlic. I used a bagged coleslaw/carrot mix and put some soy sauce and garlic powder to the dressing. The chicken was delicious eaten with the slaw, the vinegar was a perfect contrast.

Yummy salad! Loved the dressing (though we used less than half of it). I decreased the sugar and increased the ginger and sesame paste in it. I had leftover chicken, so did not make the marinade (did toss the chicken with a tablespoon of the hoisin though and would like to try the marinade next time). Skipped the wonton skins to make it healthier. Just delicious!

Wonderful salad. I especially loved the chicken, so tender and flavorful. I was out of wonton skins so made my own. It adds a nice crunch to the salad.

A perfect combination of ingredients and textures, that can't be improved! (I would recommend using low-sodium soy because of the large amount in each serving.) I don't think I've used hoisin in a marinade before and it was outstanding (also used it for basting while it was grilling). I'll make this salad again as well as the dressing and marinade on their own for other recipes...thanks!
