Instructions

    To make the dressing, stir together all dressing ingredients in a small bowl; cover and chill until ready to serve.

    To make the salad, preheat a grill or have ready a plancha or grill pan. Cut the chicken breasts in half horizontally to make thin pieces. Coat with oil and season both sides with five-spice powder and garlic salt. Grill over medium heat for 5 minutes on each side or until nicely charred and cooked through. Chill for 1 hour.

    Cut the chicken into bite-size strips and place in a bowl with 1/3 of the dressing. Mix until the chicken is evenly coated.

    Place cabbage, carrots, prunes and green onions in a large bowl and mix with the remaining dressing. Divide the salad among 4 large serving bowls and top with equal amounts of chicken and wonton strips
