  • 2 large carrots, julienned (about 1 cup)
  • 1 cup shelled edamame
  • 3 cups shredded chicken (~1 1/2 lbs. chicken)

  • 1 cup mandarin orange slices, drained
  • 1 bunch scallions, diced (~1/2 cup)
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds

  • 1 Tbsp. brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. ginger, minced
  • 1 tsp. garlic, crushed
  • 1 tsp. chili-garlic sauce
  • 1/4 tsp. salt & pepper

Instructions

  • In a large salad bowl, combine the romaine, Napa cabbage, purple cabbage, carrots, edamame, shredded chicken and wonton noodles. Gently toss in or garnish the salad with mandarin oranges, scallions and slivered almonds.
  • Whisk together the ingredients for the dressing in a bowl or mason jar and toss the salad with the dressing. Serve.
  • If you need to make the shredded chicken, season chicken tenderloins or breasts with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Place on a baking sheet with a rack on top and spray with oil or nonstick spray. Bake the chicken at 400°F for 20-25 minutes or until they chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165°F at the thickest part of the chicken.
  • You can either slice the chicken up or shred. Pro tip: use a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment to shred your chicken with ease!
