Naked Asian Chicken Salad

Those Naked Nuggets (Breadless Chicken Nuggets) I reviewed the other day are the protein source in this super yummy salad I made for lunch yesterday. Crisp & refreshing. The perfect summer salad. I ate it outside where thanks to wifi I spent most of the day enjoying the stellar weather we've been having. Not too hot and not too cold... just right like "The Three Bears."

This would be great to add to a Bento Lunch. No mayo which I try not to do on picnics in the summer.

Shelly's Naked Asian Chicken Salad

1/2 a (14 oz.) bag of Coleslaw Mix (green cabbage & carrots)
1/2 Yellow Bell Pepper, sliced thin
2 Green Onions, diced
1/4 cup Sugar Snap (or Snow) Peas
6 Naked Chicken Nuggets, sauteed lightly
1/4 teaspoon Ginger, grated
1/4 teaspoon Garlic, grated
2 Tablespoons Rice Vinegar
1 Tablespoon Soy Sauce
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
1 Tablespoon Sesame Seeds, toasted

Toast sesame seeds in a dry pan for 2 minutes. Do not walk away. Set aside. Saute nuggets till golden, slice into strips and set aside. Toss cabbage, peppers, onions, and peas together. Add chicken. Whisk ginger, garlic, vinegar, soy sauce, oil together till well combined. Pour over salad & chicken. Toss with toasted sesame seeds.

Well the caffeine energy in my morning coffee has finally kicking in. Gotta water my veggies (the tomatoes are almost as tall as me) and then it's off to pick up a project $ for the week.

Hope everyone has an AWESOME week!

Looks like the perfect recipe for summer! I looked for the chicken at Costco and couldn't find it! I think I'll ask the store manager about it next time I visit.

Looks great I will try this weekend. I am still searching for the Nuggets here. My other option was to cook some Chicken tenders and freeze them for later usage.

Mmm, Michelle, this reminds me of this recipe:


It's REALLY yummy, with or without noodles - I made it with shirataki "noodles" and alone, more as a regular salad. Seriously good.

This looks so perfectly delicious for a light summer lunch. I've never cared much for mayo. So glad to have a new, lighter chicken salad recipe sans mayo - thanks!
