Sesame Chicken Salad

I loooove salads but, I get bored quickly with the blah, basics! This Sesame Chicken Salad is quick, healthy and bursting with flavor! 

My biggest time savers are these 100% all-natural Tyson Simply Roasted chicken.

They are fully cooked and offer 20 grams of protein and 0 grams of trans fat per serving! I usually just brown mine on the skillet for a few minutes each side in a teaspoon of coconut oil.  

Here’s the recipe as a family size portion or for leftovers. I’ve always included some additional shortcut options because I know we’re all super busy: 

Salad Ingredients: 

Tyson Simply Roasted Chicken (1 bag) 

1/2 large green cabbage* 

1/2 red cabbage, thinly sliced* 

*You can also purchase a bag of pre-mixed cabbage blend 

2 cups matchstick carrots 

1 cup sliced almonds 

1 can Mandarin oranges (no sugar option) 

Dressing Ingredients: 

1/3 cup coconut aminos 

1/4 cup red wine vinegar (or apple cider vinegar) 

3 tablespoons avocado oil 

2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil 

1 teaspoon salt 

1/2 teaspoon pepper 

*If I’m in a pinch for time I just use balsamic or oil and vinegar. The salad is so flavorful it doesn’t require much dressing. 

Give it a try and let me know what you think!
