This is a great recipe from a cookbook called "Favorites" that most of my family is lucky to have their hands on.

3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/2 package wontons, cut into thirds
1 head iceberg lettuce, torn into pieces
1 (11 oz) can mandarin oranges, drained
1 (8 oz) can sliced water chesnuts, drained
1 (4 oz) package slivered almonds, toasted
1/4 cup sesame seeds, toasted
1 bunch green onions, chopped

4 Tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
4 Tablespoons white wine vinegar
1/2 cup vegetable oil

Mix together well.

Boil chicken breasts until cooked and slice into small pieces. Fry wontons in vegetable oil until crispy and cool on paper towels. In a large salad bowl, mix together chicken and wontons with lettuce, oranges, water chesnuts, almonds, green onions and sesame seeds. Toss with dressing and serve.
