Yield

4 servings

Ingredients

1/2 cup Original Bisquick® baking mix
2 tablespoons sesame seed
1 teaspoon ground ginger
2 tablespoons teriyaki sauce
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 (10 ounce) bag European-style or romaine salad mix
1 (11 ounce) can mandarin orange segments, drained
1 cup fresh snow (Chinese) pea pods, cut in half if necessary
1/2 cup Asian-style dressing

Directions

Preheat oven to 425°F(218°C). Spray baking sheet with cooking spray. Place baking mix, sesame seed and ginger in 1-gallon resealable plastic food-storage bag; mix well. In small bowl, mix teriyaki sauce and oil. Coat chicken pieces with oil mixture.

Shake about 6 chicken pieces at a time in bag of sesame seed mixture until coated. Shake off any extra mixture. Place chicken pieces in single layer on baking sheet.

Bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink in center. Cool 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, in large bowl, mix salad mix, orange segments and pea pods. Top with warm chicken pieces and drizzle with dressing; toss to coat.

Additional Information

Many supermarkets offer Asian-style dressings, but if yours doesn't carry it, try this salad with a citrus or honey-mustard dressing. Be sure to check not only the salad dressing aisle but the aisle with ethnic foods as well.

Make this salad meal complete with a basket of breadsticks, a bowl of pineapple chunks and some fortune cookies for sharing.

Add a bit of crunch to this flavorful salad by sprinkling with chow mein noodles or other fried Chinese noodles.
