Oriental Fruit Salad with Chicken

The Oriental Fruit Salad with Chicken is a culinary adventure that harmoniously marries the flavours of the East with a refreshing twist. This vibrant salad combines succulent chicken breast fillets, crisp green apples, and juicy oranges tossed in a delightful lemon-coriander dressing. With the addition of crunchy deep-fried wonton strips and a hint of honey, this dish is a symphony of sweet, savoury, and tangy notes that dance on your taste buds.

The chicken is marinated in a zesty blend of lemon juice, dried mixed herbs, salt, and pepper, infusing it with flavour. Once pan-fried to golden perfection, it’s sliced and combined with a medley of ingredients in a large bowl. The marriage of tender chicken, crisp lettuce, sweet apples, segmented oranges, and hard-boiled eggs creates a delightful contrast of textures and tastes.

What truly elevates this Oriental Fruit Salad is the homemade dressing. Lemon juice, honey, chopped coriander leaves, and extra-virgin olive oil form a luscious dressing that ties everything together. It’s the perfect balance of tartness and sweetness, enhancing the overall experience of the dish.
