Jill's Asian Chicken Salad

I've mention before that I have daughters that can cook. I've made Amber's Asian Salad many times it's always delicious. Jill put her own spin on another Asian Salad, it just might remind you of Aplebee's Asian Chicken Salad.  It has a creamy dressing  and plenty of crunchy additions. We purchased some Panko Breaded Chicken Tenders from Costco. These surprised me and were delicious. So this recipe is mostly just suggestions. It is different every time we make it. Just depends what's in the fridge that day. The creamy dressing and crispy wontons really make it. It is a perfect headed into spring salad.
