Asian Chicken Salad

I love finding a new salad recipe.
This is one I've been making for many years and you can make it to fit whatever your family likes. It's super easy and really yummy.

Asian Chicken Salad
1 Bag Tri-color slaw
4 Green onions, thinly sliced
1 Package Ramen Noodles
1 small package sliced almonds
Chicken, cut up or shredded

1 Packet Good Seasons Italian Dressing Mix (make according to directions)
Add 1/2 cup sugar
3-4 Tablespoons Soy Sauce

Optional Salad Ingredients
Mandarin Oranges
Shredded Carrots
Napa Cabbage, chopped or shaved

Do you love Costco Rotisserie Chicken?  I DO!  I like to keep shredded rotisserie chicken in my freezer to make weeknight dinners easy.  I especially like having it ready to go for salads, it makes it so quick and convenient. I'll buy one whenever I'm at Costco and come home, pull it off the bone and divide between 2 containers to put in the freezer and then I've always got something I can use at the last minute.

Sometimes I'll grill chicken or put a couple of breasts in a cast iron skillet to cook with some seasoning salt on them.  That's what I did this time. Let cool slightly and slice thinly or chop up.

Break up the Ramen noodles (discard flavor pouch) and add almonds.  Put on a baking sheet and place in 350 degree oven to toast for 10 minutes until light golden brown.

Place all ingredients in a large bowl and toss to combine then add dressing and toss again.
This time I added Napa cabbage, Mandarin oranges, Craisins & shredded carrots.

Couldn't be any easier.




  1. Seriously one of the best salads ever!

    1. Hey Shelly! I know, right? And so easy on top of that! Happy hump day!

  2. One word: Yum! Question: what is Edamame?? Apparently it's not a Southern thang! Ha!

    1. UGH..I'm so sorry this has taken me so long. Edamame are soy beans. They are a great snack and yummy in salads. (especially in orzo salads) We have a restaurant here that brings you edamame and pretzel goldfish to snack on...super fun and yummy. Check the freezer section😉

  3. Sounds easy and delicious! I've actually never eaten ramen noodles!

    1. It is...and OH MY GOODNESS, I can't believe you've never eaten ramen. I like the oriental flavor. They really are good just toasted like this to eat too.😉
