Fry each chicken finger 5 minutes or until coating has darkened to brown.

Preparation of Salad:
Prepare salad by tossing the chopped romaine with the chopped red cabbage, Napa cabbage, & carrots.

Sprinkle sliced green onion on top of the lettuce.

Sprinkle almonds over the salad, then the chow mein noodles.

Cut the chicken in small bite-size chunks. Place the chicken on the salad forming a pile in the middle.

Serve with salad dressing on the side.
