Ingredients

  • 1 large chicken breast seasoned with salt and pepper
  • 1 (3 oz) package ramen noodles crumbled, (no seasoning packet)
  • 1/4 cup almonds thinly sliced
  • 3 tbsp sunflower seeds roasted
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 1 (10 oz) bag broccoli slaw
  • 1/2 small green cabbage chopped
  • 2 green onions sliced
  • 1 carrot julienned
  • 1 tbsp cilantro chopped

For the Vinaigrette

  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil OR canola oil
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 1/4 cup hoisin
  • 3 tbsp sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp kosher sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger

Instructions

  • OPTIONAL: Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spread the crumbled ramen noodles, sliced almonds and sesame seeds on baking sheet. Place in oven and bake for 5-7 minutes or until the mixture is slightly toasted and golden brown. Remove and toss with the sunflower & sesame seeds; set aside.
  • Place a medium skillet over medium heat. Add a drizzle of olive oil, then sear & cook chicken until it reaches an internal temperature of 160 degrees. Transfer to a cutting board and allow to rest for 5 minutes before chopping.
  • In large bowl, combine the broccoli slaw, cabbage, green onion, carrot and cilantro. Add the cooled chicken and top with the ramen mixture.
  • In a bowl or jar, whisk together the ingredients for the dressing. Pour over salad, toss and serve immediately OR refrigerate for 2-4 hours before serving, which will allow the vegetables to absorb the dressing.

Notes

-I highly recommend toasting the almonds and the ramen for a few minutes in a 400 degree oven. It adds a ton of flavor to the salad!
