frequently asked questions

Can I make this ahead of time?

Yes, you can prepare the salad ahead of time. However, we recommend that you store the dressing and crunchy topping separately until you’re ready to serve. This will help keep the ingredients fresh and crunchy.

Is this salad gluten free?

The salad itself is gluten-free, but wonton strips or chow mein may contain gluten. To make a recipe gluten-free, replace the noodles with gluten-free alternatives or omit them entirely.

You can use any cooked chicken such as rotisserie chicken, rotisserie chicken, or even leftover rotisserie chicken. Just be sure to chop or dice it before adding it to your salad.

Serve Chinese Chicken Salad as a main course for lunch or dinner. It pairs well with a variety of side dishes, such as steamed rice, quinoa, or light soups. If you’re serving this salad to a larger gathering, consider serving it as part of a buffet along with other Asian-inspired dishes.
