Chinese Chicken Salad

We almost ordered take-out Chinese last night but I never feel good afterward so I talked myself into getting up, going to Trader Joes and then making dinner. I already had some leftover bbq chicken from the night before so this salad was super quick to put together.
In a big bowl combine:
(I'm not putting quanities of ingredients since I didn't measure and you can adjust everything to your own taste)
Cooked chicken breast, chopped
Romaine Hearts- I sliced them into thin strips to match the noodles.
Thin egg noodles cooked or you would use spaghetti noddles broken into pieces.
Scallions minced
Mandarin Oranges
Sesame Ginger Dressing (I bought Trader Joes brand)
Salt & Pepper to taste
Toss all ingredients until well combined.

Do you have a takeout weakness that makes you feel gross once you finish eating? I used to have that problem with Frappucinos from Starbucks. Way too much sugar and caffeine combined but so delicious. I finally had to force myself to stop buying them.
