   The day before, either prepare the chicken broth using
   a standard recipe or use canned chicken broth for
   convenience. Slowly simmer the chicken broth until the
   meat is cooked through. Place the chicken out
   overnight to dry. The next day, deep fry it in peanut
   oil and then separate the meat from the bones. With
   your hands, tear the meat into long narrow strips. Cut
   the green onions, carrots, ginger, and pickles into
   long strips. Combine the green onions, lettuce,
   carrots, scallions, red ginger, pickles, peanuts,
   coconut, and sesame seed. Mix well. Add the chicken.
   Starting with the sugar, mix the rest of the
   ingredients with the exception of the parsley and won
   ton until thoroughly combined. Just before serving,
   add the parsley and won ton pastry and toss lightly.
