Chinese Chicken Salad

My friend Jessie made this Chinese cabbage salad for girls’ night years ago, and it instantly became one of my favorites. Since then, I’ve added roast chicken to make it a full meal rather than just a side. The flavor reminds me of the Chinese Chicken Salad from California Pizza Kitchen, which I love. This salad is also great with shelled edamame tossed in.

Chinese Chicken Salad

1 pkg chicken ramen noodles
½ cup sesame seeds
¼ cup butter
½ cup slivered almonds
1 bag coleslaw mix
¼ cup vegetable oil
1 tbsp soy sauce
1/8 cup sugar
¼ cup rice wine vinegar
1 tbsp sesame oil
6 chopped green onions
2 cups pulled rotisserie chicken
1. Crush ramen noodles and brown in a skillet over medium heat with butter, sesame seeds, and almonds. Stir frequently to prevent burning.

2. Add the seasoning mix from the ramen noodles to the mixture; set aside and allow to cool.

3. To prepare dressing, whisk together vegetable oil, soy sauce, sugar, rice wine vinegar, and sesame oil.

4. In a large bowl, combine noodle mixture, coleslaw mix, onions, and chicken. Toss with dressing and serve.
