1/1 Photo of Chicken & Noodle Slaw
Sydney Mike's Note:
This Asian-style slaw is a meld of many flavors & has a bit of a crunch as well! With the chicken it becomes more than just a satisfying side dish! Preparation time does not include time needed to shred the cabbage & carrot, nor the time taken to chop the chicken. Time that could be cut back by purchasing a pre-packaged cabbage-&-carrot coleslaw & using previously cooked, chopped & frozen chicken. The time also does not include the 4-8 hours for the slaw to chill. NOTE: On June 2011, I edited the recipe to include a 2nd can of mandarin orange segments, make the peanuts optional, AND increase the servings from 8 to 12-14.
