Chicken & Noodle Slaw

Chicken & Noodle Slaw created by Tinkerbell

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.

    This made our dinner tonight and it was yummy indeed. I omitted the peanuts and used green olives (what I had) for an easy and light summer meal. The amount was trimmed back to 4 servings so we have leftover for lunch tomorrow. We each mixed the dressing into our salad servings to our liking as I enjoy a very light amount while DH likes more than I do.

    Superbly delicious, innovative slaw. I did not use the olives either, though. And I used both ramen noodle seasoning packages.

    Yummy! Other than the black olives and making just 4 servings, made as directed. Easy to put together, and enjoyed by everyone. Thanks for sharing this delicious creation. :)

    I halved this recipe, and it still made a lot. I think I should have left the dressing as stated, instead of halving it. Or at least made 2/3 of the dressing. I wanted to taste it a little more. I enjoyed this variation of Asian slaw with the addition of chicken. I'll make this one again. Thanks, Sydney Mike, for another great recipe. Made for Everyday is a Holiday tag!

    I think I had the most fun serving this recipe today. I was serving a crowd & over & over I heard, "Is that RAMEN?", "Wow!" & "Did you try this one yet? It's RAMEN!" LOL It was very well liked & I tried it both immediately after being made & the next day. I loved it both times. I did have to substitute the peanuts with sunflower seeds. I know they were a contest ingredient, but we have peanut allergies in the house. I personally don't like water chestnuts or mandarin oranges but everyone else loved them in this salad. I think this was a good use of contest ingredients. Good combination of flavors & well proportioned. Thanks for sharing your creation, Syd! Made for Hidden Gems Event - Winter 2008.
