Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix marinade ingredients in a small bowl.
  2. Place chicken in slow cooker and pour marinade over chicken, coating each piece well.
  3. Cover and cook on low 6 to 7 hours or on high for 3 to 4 hours. (Depending on how large your chicken breast are. Mine were small and were done in 5 1/2 hours on low).
  4. Remove chicken from slow cooker and cool.
  5. Reserve juices and place in a small sauce pan and simmer for 5 minutes then strain if desired. (I didn't strain it but you might want to if you have excess residual.).
  6. Shred chicken into bite-sized pieces.
  7. In a small bowl, combine the dressing ingredients with 1/2 cup of the juice from the slow cooker.
  8. In a large serving bowl toss together the shredded chicken, lettuce, carrots, peanuts, cilantro, and noodles.
  9. Just before serving, drizzle with the salad dressing.
  10. Toss well and serve.

This was very tasty, however a little too spicy for us. I think next time we will use less red pepper flakes. We also think next time we will cut down on the cilantro since it seemed to be a little overwhelming for our tastes. Instead of chicken breasts, I used grilled chicken strips which made it easy for putting it with a salad. Overall very refreshing salad on a hot summer night. Thanks for posting.

Really delicious salad. The marinaded chicken is absolutely wonderful. I had not used Maifun before and really liked it in this dish. I did cut the red pepper flakes back to 1 teaspoon as I knew it would be too hot for me to use the full amount.

WOW ! This was sooo good, I couldn't get enough! Followed recipe exactly except I used cabbage and romaine lettuce and topped it with some LaChoy chow mein noodles. I had leftovers and made a wrap with it and that too was fabulous! I will definately be making this alot.
