Asian Chicken Salad

Submitted by: BUUKWORM14

Introduction

Adapted from a Hungry Girl recipe.

Makes 8 sandwich servings, but you can also just have it solo or with rice. Try throwing some cashews in for crunch and additional nutrients.

You can use any pre-cooked chicken, but I prefer to poach on the bone since it adds no fat and you can turn the water into stock when you're done.

Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    Chicken:
    2 whole chicken breasts, bone-in
    1 onion
    1 tbsp whole peppercorns
    2 bay leaves
    5 cloves garlic, whole

    Salad:
    1 bag broccoli slaw
    1 large bunch of scallions
    1 15oz cans Mandarin Oranges in light syrup, drained

    Low fat sesame dressing

Directions

Poach the chicken:
Add all chicken ingredients to a stock pot and cover with water. Make sure it's covered by at least an inch. Bring to a boil and let it boil for 10 minutes. Cover and turn off heat. Let sit for an additional 10- 15 minutes until cooked through. Remove chicken and let cool. Reduce the liquid by half for homemade stock. Once chicken is cool, shred.

Combine chicken and all salad ingredients (except the dressing). Serve wrapped in a whole wheat tortilla, lettuce leaves or plain.

When you're ready to serve, add dressing. If you're going to have leftovers, only dress what you need.

Serving Size: Makes 8 1-cup servings
