Teriyaki Chicken Salad

This is originally a dressing for a pasta chicken salad, which is really good.  I will share that one with you a little later.  I found that it was great for marinating cooked chicken in and then using it for salads.  It makes a great meal.  The flavor is so good!!
Teriyaki Marinade/Dressing
For about 4 cups cut up chicken.
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup teriyaki sauce
1/3 cup white vinegar
3 Tablespoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Blend all ingredients together in a blender.
Cut up cooked chicken into bite sized pieces.  Marinate the chicken in the sauce over night or at least for a few hours.  Drain and serve.   Since you are using the marinade in cooked chicken you can use the leftovers for a dressing.  Or save a little before you add it to the chicken. It is excellant mixed with a little ranch dresssing. 
Layer it with your favorite salad ingredients!  This time we used: cheese, tomatoes, almonds and craisins. YUM!!  This is one of my favorites!!!
I have never tried it, but I think it would make a great marinade for uncooked chicken.  Marinate over night and then grill.
