chinese chicken salad cheesecake factory

Who out there doesn’t love the Cheesecake Factory?

This is one of my favorite restaurants and I am particularly in love with their salads. So, after a little time and research I have started to make some copycat recipes! I think this copycat Cheesecake Factory Chinese chicken salad recipe is pretty darn close to the one you have at the restaurant!

Copycat Cheesecake Factory Chinese Chicken Salad


1 head iceberg lettuce, cored and chopped
1 head romaine lettuce, cored and chopped
½ head red cabbage, cored and thinly sliced
½ C bean sprouts
1 small bunch of green onions, chopped
1 rotisserie chicken, skinned and cubed
1 bottle of Wildtree Plum dressing
1 can mandarin oranges
1 package of crispy rice noodles
1 package of crispy wonton strips
1 small bag of slivered almonds
2 TBSP sesame seeds
¼ C snow peas, sliced


Combine the lettuce, cabbage, chicken, bean sprouts, ½ of the green onions, almonds, sesame seeds, and crispy wonton strips.

Pour the dressing on top and toss. Top with the remaining green onions, almonds, sesame seeds and wonton strips.

Divide onto individual plates and garnish with mandarin oranges, snow pea slices, and crispy rice noodles.


Sidenote on the dressing: I have not attempted to create the Cheesecake Cactory Chinese chicken salad dressing, so I don’t have a recipe for you. However, I think the Wildtree Plum dressing is just like the Cheesecake Factory Chinese chicken salad dressing. Others have suggested that they use Sesame-Plum Dressing.
